We have had a few good sessions on the Peacock Gardens reserve where we have cleared and cleaned up the strip that was overgrown with Taiwan cherry and ginger. It might still look like a battlefield from the 1st World War but it is definitely taking shape and ready for further planting.
On another day we extended the area that is intended for the car park and it would take about ten cars, which is plenty. A tree stump in the entrance caused a bit of trouble but Graeme and Carol supplied a strop and Wills trusty antique Land Cruiser pulled it out easily. We were hoping that FNDC would deliver some metal to make the surface but this needs a bit more time to fit into the budget.
The Parks team were ready to do the planting but rained off by a short and fierce rainstorm and will have another go next week.
