Well loads of good work was done this morning at the allotments fields in Skerries. A bit of fun and banter was the order of the day in the beautiful Autumn sunshine.

Over 60 people turned up to give a hand at preparing the fields paths and marking out allotments. Stones were cleared, the ground was prepared for grass seeding on the walkways. All of this done in the old fashioned way without machinery.

Its amazing what zeal and enthusiasm will achieve even in the absence of the kind of real financial support other allotments such as the ones at Turvey recieved. It is a real credit to the people of Skerries that they have shown such resilience. Tom Hussey from Fingal Co Co, came along to organise and help out in the measuring and marking. Sustainable Skerries would like to thank Tom for his unwavering support for this project.

The next Work Party will be next Saturday the 2nd of October at 10am. Hopefully we will have good weather. Hope to see you there.
