Holiday time is here again at last after so many months during COVID restrictions: the returning holiday-home owners remark that they’ve not visited for such a long period and that they’ve noticed a big difference since the last time they visited. All the plants and trees have grown a huge amount after the wet Spring followed by such warm weather! Thanks to everyone for your donations and to those who give 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! Four members of our Team also went across to Camposol B to help their volunteers clear the central reservation on their part of the dual carriageway this month.
Our Wednesday Volunteers have been – surprise, surprise – weeding and watering! This is a huge burden in the Summer months, so 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 & plants, trimming, plus dead-heading established ones and more overgrown areas have been cleared.
There have been a couple of road accidents on our section of dual carriageway this month, resulting in the volunteers helping with a tree being transplanted and rubble cleared from the road. We welcomed new volunteer John4, who kindly turned out despite only being here on holiday and returning volunteer, Andrew. We 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.
