So this week we decided that we would replant one of our benches. It became uprooted a while ago, but trying to put together a workday where we are able to socially distance, and be a bit sensible, proved a challenge.
It is one of the first benches where we were making the legs too short. We extended the legs so that we would get a lot more purchase from the new cement. Luckily the slope compensates for the short legs and it is quite a comfortable perch.
We are trying to have some sort of a bench every 500 metres or so, it just allows people to sit and enjoy the path and the wildlife.
That is really all we did and we just enjoyed a socially distanced coffee and cookie afterwards.
As always, the cups are put back in the bag after our coffee, and put in the dishwasher when I get home.
We have provisionally booked an Adventure Workshop for Young Autistic Adults for the 9th December. We will be replacing the missing bench in the Youth Quadrant and also the hide bench at the bird-feeder clearing. If lockdown continues we may have to push this date out a bit. I have one person keen to attend and could do with one more…
Here is a picture of the last of the berries on offer.
I can almost feel the long, cold winter approaching.
