Big Dig

Today saw us have the BIG DIG. It was indeed BIG and we did indeed DIG. Yes! even me.

We were joined by Lisa and Shane from Communities First and about 18 young people from the Global Xchange project that has been working in the area for the last 2.5 months. Dave & Paul, our volunteers/service users, were also able to come.

We can now report that the top plot is now clear of unwanted growth and has been dug over.

On Monday we'll be visiting the local Nationwide to open our bank account. This will enbale Lisa from Communities First to begin applying for cash so that we can begin buying a shed, greenhouse and other needed things.

We're also aiming to hold our official launch early in the new year and open to service users around that time. So be warned that there will be a dedication service, if any wibloggers are interested in attending.  The date is to be arranged but probably in a half term or other school holiday - see we are family orientated as well.
