Duke of Edinburgh Award

Updated: Mar 18, 2019

It's been a wild and windy week in Lockinge but that hasn't stopped us making some huge progress in the garden. Yesterday morning we had arranged to meet Ben Lott, a student attending the local Sports Academy in Wantage. He's completing his Duke of Edinburgh Silver award and has offered to help out in the community garden.

Of course we are delighted that Ben has chosen to help Parkinsons.Me and that he has an interest in gardening. As you can see from the photo above Ben got stuck in and helped us in the Vegetable Garden painting the gravel boards (and his coat "Sorry Lindsay!"). Thankfully it's water-based paint so I'm hoping that no permanent damage has been done!

We thought that you would like to see a before and after shot of Ben’s hard work. Fortunately we had taken these 'before photos' earlier in the week. The 'after shots are coming later today - 'Lazy I know but it is Sunday morning'

As you can see, there was a lot to do! So Ben jumped in quickly took the initiative and got stuck in!

Check back soon as Ben will be blogging about his latest efforts in the garden.
