Our regular Maintenance Team have continued with street cleaning, watering and weeding with particular attention to recent large weeds appearing during the warm weather. The whole sector has also been sprayed this month with pet-friendly weed killer.
The Wednesday Volunteers have been planting, weeding and pruning the massive growth on some of our yuccas and the large palm trees with the help of Mikey Moo Fry – All Seasons Garden Services (thank you!), but much of their time is spent watering, using our little van and trailer. The very hot & humid weather continues so please think of your own plants and those planted near your casa by our volunteers. These temperatures and winds can be devastating, so if you would like to adopt a tree, please choose one (or however many you wish!) planted either along the roads or near the different features we have, and let us know. Just tie a ribbon or tape on it to designate it as ‘yours’. Total responsibility for its watering and care will pass to you and you can watch it flourish knowing it’s because of you! Trees could be adopted as a way of remembering a special someone, perhaps?
Yet another 14 tons of gravel have been spread over the Petanca court on Calle Castillo Mayorazgo and the overgrown vegetation has been cleared at the roundabout near the Golf Club driving range to make the area safer for motorists.
We are always pleased to see new volunteers on Wednesday morning (9am at the Welcome Wall) and this month we welcome Chris, so if you would like to join us, your efforts are always rewarded with a free breakfast. It is a good way to make new friends and get some muscle definition at the same time!
Please get in touch if you have any unwanted gifts which you would like to donate for our raffles; they are always appreciated.
Once more we have experienced another demoralising month of thefts
Three young palm trees have disappeared plus a large stone bench has been stolen from the corner of the Rambla Road near the bridge. Please, if you see anyone spoiling the backbreaking hard work which the team and volunteers have put in, speak to us. We will keep all contact in strict confidence.
A huge thank you must go to the really kind people who donate to our bucket, together with those who are members of our Maintenance Scheme and of course those who have worked on individual areas near their own homes. Without your support and that of our volunteers, Camposol C would definitely not look as nice and it all makes a huge difference. Thanks must also go to residents who have donated plants. They are always appreciated; thank-you.
