Lawrence, one of our parishioners, wants to become a professional gardener, he is doing a course at the moment. Very kindly he has offered to do something with our tiny little plot, actually for Brighton it is quite big, I'll put some pictures up eventually.
In the past it was somewhere for the maid used to hang out the laundry. Then, one of my predecessors had a butler, a cook and three or four other staff, since then the kitchen has been moved out of the basement, laundry gets hung up in the old scullery and the old kitchen is now an office for an ecumenical project for refugees, Brighton Voices in Exile.
Anyhow Lawrence is at this moments digging up the weeds which passed for a lawn.
Lawrence has his own blog spot, so if you are in or around Brighton and want some gardening done contact him, I think he charges about £12 an hour, a sixth of what I paid a plumber just to visit last week. His email address is on his blog.
