this weekend

One lovely listener, GMVP of the Shire has put out a request for helping hands. Come on!! You appreciate the loveliness of this green and pleasant land and now you can give something back. Come on!!!! Splosh some paint around, make new friends. Goddamn it, if you're single, you never know what might happen.

We urgently need volunteers for another (hopefully final) push to get the Slade Ponds fence painting project finished. We are holding an additional fence painting session tomorrow - Saturday, 24 May - at 11am. Please bring family, friends, and even strangers who fancy helping! You need only come for as long as you can stay...1/2 hour...1 hour...2 hours.. A little over half the fence panels have been completed, with the hard work of several volunteers, including 3 or 4 committed volunteers who have come every Sunday for the past several weeks. If you've walked by the area you'll see how smart the painted sections look (and how shabby the unfinished sections are!). If you can't make it tomorrow (Saturday) we will also arrange for paint and supplies to be available on Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday. Come along, spread the word, and help make our shire more beautiful.

Hi Dr Pangloss
Thanks for posting the info re. slade ponds fence painting.

We made good progress yesterday (Saturday) with the few people that turned up (only 5!). We are far from done though we have accomplished much so far. The work really does go faster with more people there.
So we area asking again is as many people can come along on the coming Sundays until the job is done. Our usuals turn up at 11am and at 12:30. So to all that love plumsteadshire please come along.

The work is not too difficult and can actually be quite enjoyable, with birds providing peaceful background music.

Thank you.

The fence painting is finally finished. Many many thanks to the ten or so people who, over the weeks, put in the effort.
