What we have been up to over the last few months

In October and November we have had our last few tidying up and winter planting sessions at the station.

Covid restrictions meant that we were unable to go ahead with our usual style of Family Learning Events – but, instead, for the October half term,   Kate and Jane made up DIY bags for children, which were collected and taken away.  This proved to be a very popular activity, and all the ordered bags…. and more were collected.

And another bag given out for home activities

And this photo was sent in using ideas in the pack.

Flowers made using the kit. Bulbs were also given out: we will have to wait for these,

The friends of Charlton Park gave C.C.G.  1,000 bulbs to plant out in the 2 orchard areas maintained in the park by C.C.G.    Volunteer bulb planters turned out on 2 separate mornings and managed to get them all planted.  There should be a lovely show in both areas come Spring.
