Wed 18th Sept 2013 - Northwood House, Cowes.

This week saw us at Northwood House in Cowes, which is now a Charitable Trust, depends a lot on 
their volunteers.  This hard working group put much time and effort into maintaining the house and park from painting and decorating to clearing drains, collecting leaves and mending the windows. Our task this week was to cut back the bay hedge in front of the church, which is swamping the lovely border shrubs.  They also needed the height reduced, so that the view of the church is opened up for people to enjoy. So we set to with lopper and saws, and gathered all the cut pieces into neat piles for later removal.  Once cut back there was a lot of litter including glass bottles and cans, so black plastic bags were used for their removal. During this task we discovered a charity tin for the Hospice (which had obviously been thrown into the hedge) and it was still full of money.  One of our group kindly agreed to drop this back into the Hospice shop, so we hope this will swell their coffers a bit more.

STOP PRESS...! There is a nice write-up and photograph of us all at the 10th Anniversary do in this week's County 21 (I think!)

Many thanks to Carrie and Mark for the photographs and editorial this week.
