Autumn tasks

Kinnoull School Nov 2017

Our volunteers have been busy throughout October and November with autumn tasks across our Fair City. Despite the shortening hours of daylight and the chilly weather, we have been out litterpicking, planting bulbs, clearing flower beds and planting tubs and containers. And best of all, we have been joined by a great range volunteers from other organisations who have made our efforts easier and more fun.

We helped P5 pupils from Kinnoull School clear the annual bedding from planters in their playgound and plant them up with Springs bulbs. The youngsters' interest, enthusiasm and hard work are always an inspiration!

We have also been involved in a couple of partnership projects aimed at sprucing up Perth Lade. First, we joined staff from Balfour Beattie and Perth & Kinross Council who were contributing volunteer hours to an afternoon's tidy up session. Lade tidy Nov17

We split into teams and spread ourselves along the lade, clearing undergrowth, pruning trees and picking up litter. The picture shows us getting our pre-session briefing. 

Then the 'Perth's Blooming Lade' group asked us to help with their bulb planting session by the side of the Lade path in Tulloch. Lade bulbs Nov17Some of the ground was very hard, but we all persevered and managed to put in several hundred crocus and daffodils, which will make a lovely display in Spring. 

Other autumn sessions have included clearing begonias from the bed in front of St Leonard's Church (which amazingly bloomed beautifully right up to the first frost in early November!). We planted a host of Spring bulbs there and are looking forward to seeing them come through next year. Our volunteers have also worked at the heather garden in Riverside Park, at Rodney Gardens, on the containers at Cherrybank corner and on the planters at Craigie crossroads. Our regular Tuesday morning volunteer sessions (and others) keep us busy all year round. Do get in touch if you would like to join us.
