Frescati garden looking good

A quick photo after today's working bee at Frescati House.
ANOTHER successful working bee was held this afternoon by the Friends of Frescati. The group is a Special Committee of the Derwent Valley Council and it's been my pleasure to be their councillor representative for the last year or so.

The Friends get together every second Sunday afternoon to work in the garden around the house, which occupies a prime site opposite the Barracks at Willow Court.

A big focus has been the discovery and restoration of a pond in the lower garden, while nearer to the road the group has successfully nursed the neglected heritage hedge back to health. Much work has been done around the hedge over the last few months and as I was leaving this afternoon I stopped to take in the surroundings and snapped a quick photo which you can see above.

The Friends of Frescati are always looking for additional helpers in the garden and I would be pleased to put anyone interested in touch with the group if you would like to drop me a line.
