Southway Housing chose The Lost Plot as one of their projects for the Community Commitment Day on 20 September.

Despite the less-than-perfect weather conditions, Southway Housing staff turned up bright and early to help transform The Lost Plot.

Tasks included, clearing the road, building a fruit cage, cleaning the pond, strimming the grass and cleaning out the greenhouse.  Together with some Lost Plot volunteers, everyone set to and got cracking.

Sue kept everyone fed and watered and by lunchtime, real progress had been made.  Despite a hiccup with lunch and the odd downpour or two, most of the jobs were completed by close of play.  The fruit cage will be standing for years to come and the greenhouse has never been cleaner.

Many thanks to all those who got involved. You're all welcome back anytime and I know we've made some converts with the rocket, nasturtium flowers and leaves and vine tomatoes all growing in the polytunnel.

Anyone interested in coming down to see what the transformation is like, just come along on Sunday from 1 - 4pm.  Don't worry, there's still more clearing, cleaning and digging to do, that's if the rain stops...
