Had to fill the waterbutt up with saved waterbutt water from at home in plastic bottles a bit about 50ltr and tighten up the wire around it just in case they try to steal the waterbutt as well weigh it down a bit

It has CCTV but not sure it is facing the waterbutt more on the shelters and it was some when in the week as not been there since last Sunday not sure they would watch through that much CCTV to find it, if it does get picked up.

Will email main volunteer man to let him know and see if they can check with the CCTV anyway

Evening forkers

That sounds great Verdun nice plant to get

Frosty ground here today also ice in trays of water, was so sunny out I have been cutting the rose down a bit as getting a bit tall and the wind keeps blowing it to the back door window.

Watching the birds outside today flying around

Had a trip up the road to the train station today and bad news some one has stolen our waterbutt stand and emptied out the water from the waterbutt - that is so disappointing
