We are working at Grange Primary for 3 days this week. We have built a living willow tunnel in the Surestart Garden and are building a dome and a tunnel in the Reception garden.
We have worked at Grange on several projects over the years and the living willow domes in the main playground look fantastic. We built these domes about 6 years ago as part of the Sefton Living Shade Project. We returned 3 years ago to overhaul the domes and since then the site manager has done a great job of looking after them ie pruning and weaving in.
The weather was fine for the morning but began clouding over at lunchtime. We decided to go and cut some willow in Maghul after finishing at the school and by the time we had cut several bundles the heavens opened and there was a massive downpour. Luckily the rain had stooped when we got to Endmoor and had to unload the van.
