Hi Everyone, I hope you are all keeping well. I just wanted to give you an update on what is happening at the centre.

If you would like more information about any of the groups to be added to our West End Warriors WhatsApp group let us know. It the easiest way to stay informed.

For now, stay safe everyone, and remember Hands, Face and Space.

Dan’s July gardening jobs

Start planting everything out that’s going out and aim for the end of the month to be enjoying watering your crops in the sun (wishful thinking maybe I know)

Attack of the weeds! The enemy is fast approaching and needs to be kept at bay. My golden rule is don’t walk past a weed and remember there’s no such thing as tomorrow. It’s a lot easier and pleasant to keep on top of the weeds a little at a time.

It is your last chance for sowing peas and any other seeds you want to put in and a good way of prolonging your harvest by planting some more out now!

Julys motto is:

“Early to bed, early to rise, work like hell and fertilise”!
