Thanks everyone for Advice, I have a Buddleia I brought with me, that I grew from a wild cutting, luckily in the corner of the yard there is a cammelia as yet to flower? As I rent it will all have to be in pots, whatever I plant some lovely bulbs of Daffidils & tulips come through at the Moment to enjoy

Thankyou Tetley, we did try to get Army Cadets in to help but, Hebden Bridge have been hogging them lol! It has been ALOT worse for them, some of the shops may never re open? I hope & pray for a decent summer ahead for all of us to dry out a bit, I have asked CRT for extra help & other groups are banding together, to help out so, real Yorkshire grit is all around

As you can see we have a big job on our hands at Calder and Hebble Navigation, we used to have three Gardens dotted along the various Locks but, sadly now washed away, we hope to start replanting as soon as we have cleaned up and crt have authorised work to start, we are only a small group of seven (mainly retired) but we are determined to get back to where we were last year, I will post more pictures of our recovery as soon as I can, thanks for all the support , Ruth team leader, Brighouse crt Group
