This is only the beginning. As I’m writing this, the pledges are being collected via Paypal & GoCardless. Thank you so much to each of you who pledged and/or showed your support in other ways. If I don’t know you personally, please do not hesitate to come and say hello, whether on social media or in real life. I will announce a proper action plan in January. Anyone who wishes to contribute in any way please contact me. It can be gardening, artistic, practical or advice. This was always meant to be a community project. We are only temporary keepers of Hollickwood. I’m very glad that I can support Linden’s legacy in the PTA, which includes something most London kids do not have access to - nature. Let’s restore our wild garden, make proper use of it this spring and create something magnificent on the hedge. Competition still open, by the way! Please follow the updates at www.facebook.com/friendsofhollickwood where the winners of the raffle will be announced on this Sunday at 7 pm. There will be more gardening, Xmas celebrations & other community-related stuff on there too so make sure you pop in every now and again to give us a like. A special thank you to the following local businesses for their extraordinary support: Sunshine Garden Centre Sultan Decorators Ltd Jim Stevenson (Carpenter) Kay & Kompany Finally thanks to all of those who gave little but from the heart. Each pledge will blossom in the wild garden this spring. I'm attaching a video from last weeks gardening club. I hope it will work! Very best, Diana Twitter: @voxerbrant @thestorydesk Instagram: @thestorydesk @thesultansofmuswellhill P.S. If you are one of the anonymous pledgers, please tell me as I would love to say thank you. I won’t tell a soul, I promise!
