I didn’t get out on a workday this last weekend (Sunday 20th March), however I hear that the group spent a productive day at Attingham in the walled garden with NT staff Debbie and Mary.

So, there is no big story about how much work was done…no. Instead, when I spoke to various WNTCV group members, what do you think one of the main topics of discussion was? CAKE! It is becoming apparent that cake is the fuel of choice for all of our efforts and it seems this past weekend at Attingham was no different. A little birdy tells me there was chocolate fudge cake (yum), cake was also supplied by the NT (coffee & walnut and fruity cinnamon cake mmm) and there were special biscuits to celebrate Matt Hinton achieving 300 volunteer hours in one year (well done Matt). I feel sad to have missed out on this cake-fest but, dear readers, I wasn’t being entirely lazy on my day off – I was ‘testing’ new recipes for future WNTCV workdays.
