BIG DIG DAY 16th MARCH

BigDigLogo_largeLast Saturday we opened our gates to friends new and old as part of the UK-wide Big Dig community garden day.

The Big Dig aims, “to involve local people in creating vibrant community food gardens, which can reduce anti-social behaviour, provide fresh, healthy food and put pride into communities,” which pretty much sums up what we’re all about too. So we decided to take part, linking up with The Bridge Centre in Ore and Bohemia Walled Garden, St Leonards to put our towns on the growing map.

But the weather was not in our favour…it didn’t just rain, it poured. However, in true UK spirit we didn’t let that stop our party.

Da made us all delicious Thai soup for lunch, the perfect thing to warm us on such a wet and windy day.

There were homemade cakes a-plenty.

Cups of tea…and a councillor popped in/ out the tea cup.

A highlight was Pepe Mache’s ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ puppet show.

Thank you to everyone who came for making the day so successful despite all odds!
