Mexborough Action weekend yest help @mexcommcampus create nature garden.
It was a pleasure to join Philip Barker from Mexborough community campus – masters yesterday at Mexborough Athletic/Welfare yesterday to help clear more land of rubble, litter, scrap metal, rubbish etc as the project moves much closer to creating a nature wildlife area for all to enjoy.
Phil has wored tirelessly on this project (almost single-handedly at times!) so it was great to be able to join him yesterday for a few hours with Mexborough Ferryboat Association volunteers Daniel Goddard & Tracey Gibbons + the legendary Tomy Joyce MBE!
Huge thanks to Anita Barker-Adey & Emily Barker for providing hot drinks and hot dogs to the hard-working volunteers and to local social enterprise Food Aware CIC for donating bottled water and biscuits.
The nature wildlife area is really taking in shape with already a pond, bug hotel, compost area & nature garden taking shape with a seating/picnic area and new grass to follow in the Spring.
This yet another example of what can be achieved when we all work together for the benefit of our town!
