On Tuesday, I went with Marcus Belben to Swan Corner, bringing plants, gardening tools and wood chippings. Swan Corner is a community project to improve the area around the Brook Lane/Wheelers Lane roundabout, started by Marcus and supported by residents and organisations including Swanshurst School. We were expecting a group from the school to come and help, and sure enough, the girls soon arrived. Marcus explained the jobs for today; the group would split in two, one planting trees, the other planting flowers. The flower group were planting near the noticeboard created by a local sculptor. I mostly stayed with the tree group, where I took pictures of the various stages. Finally, at twenty past two, we were finished; all trees and flowers planted, all holes filled in. It was a job well done!
