Donning her wellies has been all in a day’s work for St Albans Mayor Cllr Annie Brewster in the recent rain-soaked weeks.
But when she dug them out again last Thursday, it was all in a good cause – to help replant the Vintry Gardens located next to St Albans Cathedral.
The Mayor turned gardener to join a work party of volunteer gardeners from the Earthworks charity to carry out the planting of a variety of shrubs and plants in the walled garden and re-use Allium bulbs from the district’s roundabouts.
The council’s grounds maintenance contractors, John O’Conner, was on hand to provide guidance and support.
The Mayor said: “All the hard work being done this week will make the Vintry Gardens look stunning when spring comes at last.
