The first frogs of spring

Well I woke up this morning (without a blues song in my head!)

Sorry about that, this morning the wildlife pond in my back garden was full of frogs, already doing what frogs tend to do as the day length increases. Anyway, a facinating half hour before going to work wondering quite where they all come from, since there now seems to be more frogs than pond. Still, I’m glad to see them back since they always give the feeling that spring and Bill Oddie will soon be with us.

Fellow allotmenteers from around the country also seem to be experiencing a froggie February as I checked out my local allotment blogsite Allotments4all

Anyway, back infront of the PC today, picking up some enquiries about people who want to do our new training courses on developing community groups, called The Committee Conundrum. People seem to be picking up on this through our Community News by email service, which I started when I first came into post about 6 months ago. As well as theĀ  savings that Community News by email is providing in terms of stamps, printing and envelopes, its also means we can spend less officer time collating. The other bonus is that people who get Community News by email, get full colour PDFs and we get something in their their email inbox every month (which increases the amount of feedback we get from other voluntary organisations).
