Grapes Hill Community Garden Update

The exceptionally mild autumn continues and, as I write, our annual flowers such as Cosmos, mallows and Helichrysum continue to flower in the absence of frosts. The ash trees have shed their leaves and we're using them to make leafmould. We've also created a log habitat pile for hibernating insects.

On Wednesday 16th November Rob Hopkins paid us a visit and then on Saturday 19th November we had a very successful fundraising concert at The Belvedere Centre, featuring Saxobility, Norwich Ukulele Society and Norwich Accordion Band.

Now is a good time to join the Grapes Hill Community Garden Group (GHCGG). We've just launched our members' newsletter, which features articles about the garden and its plants, people and wildlife. And on Saturday 10th December we will have a celebration in the garden for GHCGG members, featuring mince pies and mulled wine.

For more information on the garden see our website and Facebook page. Jeremy Bartlett.
