Biffa will be spraying streets, pavements and passageways to control weeds. Didsbury West is due for the first treatment on 22nd April. We do not have specific dates for the second treatment, but it will be during mid-summer.
Biffa will not be spraying the parks, and I have spoken to Richard Salisbury who confirmed that they do not spray in Mersey Bank Park.
If you have any concerns about spraying on your street, or would like to exempt your street from spraying, please contact us.
Unfortunately our two regular volunteers for the coffee afternoon are no longer able to work at the event, and as a consequence we are forced to cancel the event. However the tea dance, scheduled for the 5th February, will go ahead as planned.
Our Christmas crafts session was great fun. We made three-dimensional snowflakes and cardbaord "gingerbread" houses, with LED tealights inside. Everything looked very festive.
