CROW (Conserve Reading on Wednesdays)

Albert Road Day Centre, Caversham ~ Garden maintenance

On the 14th May 2008, CROW visited the old people's day centre in Albert Road, Caversham. Our task was to clear the holly and other shrubs which had grow up between the paved area outside the lounge and the lawn, thereby letting more light in to this area and improving the view from the lounge. We also wanted to improve access to the lawn by leveling the pathway.

(Our thanks to the Centre staff for the freshly baked scones and bread pudding they provided during the day. Also to the staff and Centre's users for the Thank You card, it's good to know when our efforts are appreciated.)

For the task we were joined by six volunteers from Kensington Mortgages: Philippa, Kirsty, Jodie, Tanya, Lesley and Lisa. Many thanks to them for all their help.
