have finally got the Maintenance guide scanned in and uploaded to its own website. I had to do this because Sefton Council have taken down their willow website. we expected it to happen some time as the Sefton Living Shade Project actually finished years ago! As i wrote the text for the website i have no concerns about reposting it on my own site.
its a good idea for schools to print out each page, laminate it and keep it handy in the staffroom. then there are no excuses for not maintaining the willow structures.
