Improvements in the Garden

It's been a busy month for the garden- if you have visited in the last week you will have noticed a few changes. We have taken delivery of our shiny new outdoor oven, which is now in its new home! It's not quite ready to cook on yet as it is still being tempered, but we're really excited about its first outing on the 8th June to bake bread for the Strawberry Picnic.

Volunteers from Enterprise Rent a Car helped install the (very heavy!) oven when they joined Joe, Helen and Annie in the garden on 17th May for Business in the Community's Give & Gain Day. They also painted the fence around the pond, cleared several loads of rubbish to the tip and planted up some beautiful pot displays and a mini bed.

Thank you very much to the volunteers for their hard work, and to Powells (Cowley Road) for lending us their pallet truck without which we would have been stuck. Have a peak at the photos on our flickr album (link below) or even better, go and take a look at the results in person this weekend! See:
