Wednesday Volunteering Sessions 10.00-12.30

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.

Volunteer Weekend Saturday 11 & Sunday 12 September 2021 10.00-16.00

FoWP volunteers are looking for help, even just for an hour, to assist in their on-going work to develop Westminster Park for the benefit of humans and wildlife in agreement with the CW&C parks officers.

Plans for the Volunteer Weekend include:

  • Digging a wildlife pond
  • Sowing wildflower areas (after removing turf)
  • Clearing brambles and creating habitat piles
  • Gardening on the formal beds, planting, weeding, pruning
  • Bulb planting and much more.

It’s a great range of activities for families and for people of all abilities – there will also be a chance to hear about the projects in more detail and how they will benefit our local wildlife.

If anyone can bring their own tools or bits of kit that would also be brilliant:

  • barrows
  • saws
  • loppers
  • spades
  • trowels

Whatever you bring, please also ensure that you have suitable footwear and sturdy gloves.
