Yvonne has retired

Yvonne has retired after a brilliant 5 years

Yvonne has retired from Sunnyside. On Friday 18th August we had a farewell lunch. Yvonne has done a wonderful job welcoming and supporting many people from the local community and is a brilliant gardener, she will be sorely missed. Luckily for us Yvonne is going to be running a “Retired Gardeners Lunch Club from 10 – 2pm every Wednesday starting on Wednesday 6th September, so whether you are retired or not you are very welcome to pop in and say “Hello” to Yvonne on Wednesdays. Hear are some photos of Yvonnes last few days….


Cob Oven

Old News…

At the end of last September we spent the weekend building our new cob oven.  Lots of fun was had getting messy mixing up sand, straw and clay to make cob.  Then even more fun was had as we jiggled, jived and bounced on the mixture to bind the cob together.  The oven is now drying out and we hope to use it on halloween to cook some spooky pizzas.

Tim and Sheridan show everyone how it’s done!
