A two sided Walls leaflet is also available in the Bridge Stores K'o. It describes the plants that grow on walls in K'o and where you might see them. Finding them is a great family activity for visitors or villagers alike. It is educational too. A suggested donation of £0.50 to cover costs can be put in the tin in the shop. You can download a copy above. You might like to make a donation when you next visit the shop.
