This week and next is all about the benches. We stained six so far and next week we will tighten up the joints on the picnic-style ones and give them another coat on the top surfaces.
We also put down a load of wildflower seeds. Every bench has to have a bit of a feature. This being a decent view across the heath, a busy wildflower patch, or birds darting in and out of a hedge.
We have another picnic bench to put in somewhere along the trail. This is one that we have refurbished and will make a really good story in a few weeks time.
Loads of people using the path today and hopefully nobody sat down and ended up with a stripy bottom.
Still waiting to hear if we can revert to fully manned workdays and also start our once-a-month weekender day. As soon as we can I will let everyone know.
