Deal's Big Dig - Weekend One

We had a fantastic response to our Big Dig meadow making at the Deal Station today. 

The idea is transform the waste ground on the Ramsgate Side  (it use to be a lovely Victorian Ticket Office which they demolished in 1970) into Poppy and Golden Coreopsis meadow this year.

 Its part of our idea to transform 'unloved' pockets of land in the town into attractive, bee-wildlife friendly mini-meadows and way of remembering the 10million dead of WWI with mini-meadows.

We had about 25 volunteers out today in a 'all-seasons' weather morning. Who worked really hard to
clear about 115sq m.

Massive thank you to all those diggers, rubblish clearers and the blessed cakemakers who worked so hard today.

Next weekend 29th March we doing a second dig, adding some topsoil and sowing our Poppy & Golden Coreopsis mix. Please if you got some time pop down - we start about 10am to 12.
