Holiday time is here again and while the returning holiday-home owners may have noticed we’re still playing ‘catch-up’ with the post lockdown weed problem, they remark that they’ve still noticed a huge difference since the last time they visited. Thanks to everyone for your donations and to those who give raffle prizes, unwanted plants and pots (plus cool drinks offered to our Maintenance Team workers). Apologies if we wake anyone; the team begin sweeping, spraying and cleaning at 7am on Mondays during Summer because of the exhausting heat: it’s impossible to clean streets silently! Even more so, when they’re chipping away at large areas of caked-on mud still left on the roads after the lockdown storms.

This month our Wednesday Volunteers have been – surprise, surprise! – weeding and watering. This is a huge burden in the Summer months. If you have any spare time, please give the plants near your home a drink.  Every area is suffering in these high temperatures. They have also been planting donated trees and plants and trimming and dead-heading established ones. Overgrown areas have been cleared and the long grass has been strimmed.

A special mention to new Volunteer Sandra, who kindly renovated our Flowerpot Man and we welcome new volunteers; Judi & Den, John3 & Jan, Geoff and Alan to our group and would like to invite anyone else interested in volunteering with us to come down to the Welcome Wall on Camposol C at 9am on Wednesdays: a free breakfast is on offer!

May we politely request that dog owners pick up any mess their pets leave behind?

It only takes a minute to put a bag in the bin and will keep the area smell, germ and poo-free. Thanks!

Green Fingers will be holding our Annual Street Party on C2 this year at the end of August. Including entertainment, tickets are only €5 per person and children under 12 free! We ask you to provide your own food and drink so that we can all maintain any hygiene and social distancing regulations. Further info on the date/location will be posted either on our chalkboards, Facebook groups Green Fingers Camposol and Camposol C Sector Group or contact John, our Chairman on 634 325 427
