Digging out this new shrub border was not easy, after rain. But we want to put a lovely range of shrubs and trees along this edge of the Gardens. And our happy Stansted Security staff volunteers kept on smiling!

Elsewhere, we had volunteers excavating and relaying the edging of the white bed; digging, hoeing and weeding in the walled garden; weeding and planting in the Italian garden; adding a new kitchen unit and worktop in Daisy’s; painting the Archive building and viewing platform; doing Archive work; and finishing the production of a new display unit for the Archives. What a productive day – fuelled by good cakes!
