You will see around our great poster for the Serpentine Community Garden Fringe event ‘Mix It Up’ on Sunday 11 July. The event features ‘The Good ‘Ole Boys’ and ‘Susie and the Bad Habits’ (13:15 to 14:30). Gates open at 12:00 noon. Come early for mocktails and people are invited to stay later and see the Community Garden. Numbers are limited for reasons we know all too well.So please book free tickets in advance at eventbrite.co.uk. Search for ‘Mix It Up’
We have had sightings of our drone man Keith who is putting together footage of Serpentine Walks and the Community Garden. Keith and crew will be returning for shots of the rest of Buxton.
The hot weather has led to the annual WhatsApp requests from doting ‘parents’ asking volunteers on site to water their chillis, verbenas or other much loved babies with precise guidance about how to do so. Such tasks happily done to the book.
Out on site we have a bit of a delay in getting some parts to fit each other for the new polytunnel but it should be up soon. A bit of site tidying has taken place with trimming and weeding which is good as we want to look our best for the Fringe. Raised bed D has had a lot of TLC from Jane, Holly and Margaret – topping up, planting of cabbage and cauliflower, plus cover with blue netting. Courgettes have gone into ton bags. And sooo much watering.

You never quite know what will happen when you are doing a session at the Serpentine Garden. We met Dave Carlisle and wife Sue at the gate today and took up an offer of a bench rescued and renovated by the Friends of Buxton Station. The bench duly arrived on a barrow soon afterwards.
