Reverse DIY SOS – Good News

Here are some of the pictures of the community garden that has been subjected to a reverse DIY SOS – that is, lovely things that were in place have been taken away by local community gardening organisations. This is because the land has been sold to be developed into industrial units. Deana and Julia are never short of an idea or two, so they negotiated an extra week to clear the site of any items they could [ thank you to LCC staff and Wates who have been patient with us]

So far we have rescued lots of items – still got  the very large shed in these photos,  looks like its sheer size makes it impossible to rescue, you’d need an army and a huge truck – are there any spare armed forces out there? There is also a large aluminium greenhouse with poly carbonate panes – again its size makes it too big for one or two people – needs that army or navy or air force… or young farmers or any strong, knowledgeable gang with tools and large vehicle! There is still just about time if you could use them, we are supposed to clear site by Sunday 13th November!

Almost forgot there are some large trees and if anyone wanted the wood for laying off to season, then turn into something beautiful in the future – its there for the taking!

Quite a bit of rockery stone – some block paving bricks still available.

The tunnel has been rescued, as have lots of tools and willow, raised beds, timber, chairs and tables rescued too! Workbenches and some old woodworking tools are going to be loved back into life and lots of staging from the greenhouse has been rehomed!

Beneficiaries include Coalville Heroes, CEEP, John Storer House Allotment and Saffron Acres, Leicester  and of course all the people that work, volunteer and use their spaces and attend activities.
