After 2 full days of barrowing mulch, laying eco mat and more barrowing, then lots of raking and foot shuffling to filter the mulch into the little eco mat spaces, the car park is virtually finished!
A huge thank you goes out to everyone that helped me with getting this done, Janet, Steve, Robert, Paul, Caitlin and her mum Sarah, Mungo and Clare! (sorry if I've missed anyone off the list. It's been a long couple of days!)
I'd still be there today only halfway through completion without all of your help. It was greatly appreciated!
Parking is still going to be greatly limited for a while so please park considerately to make best use of the space. There should be room to park several cars on a slant (thanks for the word Janet) or diagonally (Mungo) with room to pass behind them to further spaces or to access the turning point at the end of the row. All entrances and exits to the site are to be made through the first gate and not the second. Any deliveries that you have to the site should also be made through the first gate and not the second please. With this in mind, please don't block the gate entrance with your car, thanks. Unloading can still be done in this area briefly and if there are no remaining parking spaces please unload your things and park your car off site and walk back. It is very important that you do not park your car at all in the farm track alongside the site as this is a private road belonging to another farmer. It can only be used to access the first gate, thanks.
The additional parking on site should help make it easier for car users now but obviously if you are able to come to the site on foot or by bike or bus (the bus stop is right outside the entrance) then please do so and it will help a lot.
