Volunteers have been working on the woodland area, creating paths using wood chippings. We’ve also been reinforcing fences and securing the area. Our zoo champions are creating wildlife areas and will be installing bat and bird boxes, as well as working on toad and hedgehog shelters. Pond work is on-going. Maintenance of the formal flowerbeds is always required.
A group meet every Wednesday from 10.00 and work on various projects in the park. Additional volunteers always welcome.
Happy New Year! We’ll be back working in the park on Wednesday 12th January 2022 from 10.00 till about 12.30.
Come along and help – there are a variety of tasks that we undertake from weeding in the formal beds to more heavy duty work. There will be something to suit any willing volunteer. Please wear appropriate footwear/ clothing, as well as gardening gloves and bring any equipment you may need.
The AGM will now be held on Zoom due to the rising Covid numbers. Please email Sue Britton (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to receive the link to join the meeting.

4 hardy volunteers braved the rain this morning – and then the sun came out! More to plant next week. Thanks to our Councillors for funding the bulbs.
Cutting back the hedge alongside the dog walking access/ tennis courts. Some sections need infilling to enable laying which will help manage the height.
Other volunteers worked on the formal beds and we were grateful for the donation of two mahonia plants.
Thank you so much to our amazing volunteers today. We achieved so much. Tomorrow will see planting of the wildflower areas, more de-turfing for later bulb planting and completion of pond digging. Hope to see more volunteers on Sunday – any time between 10.00 and 16.00.
