Although holiday time is here again, there have been markedly fewer visitors to Camposol this Summer and, together with lockdown earlier in the year, this has had a knock-on effect on Green Fingers. The restrictions in place have unfortunately meant we have had to cancel both our AGM and the Street Party this year, but safety must come first. However, €400 was raised from the raffles at our Quiz Night hosted with strict social distancing by The Diner and Bar on Camposol B. Many thanks to Sue Pipe and her wonderful staff.

This month the Maintenance Team have continued their rota of the streets on Lower C; sweeping, spraying and clearing. They have also pruned back large shrubs at the street corners to improve visibility for drivers and completed DIY tasks in the storage unit.

The hard work of our Volunteers has made a huge difference to all the overgrown areas left during lockdown and we are gradually catching up. This month our Wednesday Volunteers have been spending much of their time watering. They have also been moving yet more full and heavy planters, dead-heading, weeding, clearing fallen leaves and trimming roses and trees.

We welcome new Volunteer Margaret, to our group and would like to invite anyone 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! We were also ably joined this month by four young ladies here on holiday: Emily, Bethany, Lucy and Poppy, who wanted to help out with their Dad, Steve. This was really kind of them!
