Growing Ideas, Growing Spaces and Volunteers
The residents of a sheltered housing project in Ryde were the lucky recipients of nearly 8 tonnes of topsoil and compost today. The team from Growing Ideas, working with a pair of volunteers, shovelled, barrowed and tipped all the soil during a day of unending torrential rain. Despite wearing waterproof tops and trousers Kevin McNamara and Danny Giblin of Growing Ideas had to go and buy replacement outfits at lunchtime. Big thanks are due to Kerry and Peter for all their hard work in some pretty unpleasant conditions. Still, they both said it was well worth it once they had finished for the day and were enjoying a cup of tea on Ryde seafront!
