Many thanks to Sarah Peacock who ran a great bulb planting workshop on 14th November. We planted mixed daffodils inside the pots and topped them off with pansies. Some of the pots can be seen outside block 16-23 Buxhall Crescent and on the steps of the Community Centre. The nature walk was postponed due to terrible weather and will take place in February, details to follow. Also many thanks to James Robertshaw for the photographs. www.jamesrobertshawphotography.com

Welcome to the Buxhall Bee* blog, which will be updated with info about Lucy Harrison's project at Buxhall Crescent, E9.
If you'd like to be on the mailing list email Lucy on firstname.lastname@example.org
*Bee (noun): a community social gathering in order to perform some task, engage in a contest, etc.
Some things that will be happening, with your input:
BUXHALL BEE NEWSPAPER
The Buxhall Bee newspaper will be designed and produced by Lucy Harrison during the next few months. It will include features and information about Buxhall residents’ hobbies, interests and skills, plus anything else you’d like to share with other people. It can’t happen without you!
Lucy will be collecting your favourite tracks to put together a Buxhall Playlist for the end of the project.
What’s your favourite recipe? Doesn’t matter how simple or difficult to make, send it in to be included in a special recipe edition of the Buxhall Bee newsletter.
Guided walks & Nature Trails
A series of guided walks and nature trails are being planned, get in touch to get updates
What’s your hobby?
Do you have an interesting hobby? Are you ace at knitting or great at singing? Whatever it is, get in touch to include it in the newspaper.
Towards the end of the project there will be a communal lunch where residents will be invited to share food and drink and get to know neighbours.
For information about any of the above- or if you'd like to suggest ideas- please email email@example.com
This project is being funded by SPACE and Newlon Fusion.
