|"Toot toot" went Granville the TransPennine engine.|
Today there was cake, sweets, biscuits and we all waved at a train and it tooted at us.
No, it wasn't a trip out for the local infants school, we were planting trees at Standedge.
We were: myself, Philip, Steve, Stephen, Peter, Jon, Janette, Simon, Ben, Sue, Cristina, Dianne, Tanya, John, Hap, Adrian, Dave, Cath and Geoff.
We planted 105 Oak, 45 Aspen, 45 Rowan, 30 Guelder Rose, 30 Dogwood and 30 Crab apple.
Cake was Pineapple upside down cake, plus Hap had brought a selection of Indian sweets, which were hugely popular, and Dianne brought Jaffa cakes. I am not sure we earned all those calories.
Lots of train songs so two today, one from me and one from Steve, can you guess...
