June is the month for the hedge trimming around the college to start. Graham and Simon worked together to trim the longest hedge, a box hedge that borders our nursery area.
Kieron and Ady worked together on another hedge, this one outside the college grounds, on the junction of Walton Street and Beaumont street. Dressed in high visibility vests they taped off the sections of pavement next to the hedge and worked their way along using the high reach hedge trimmer.
