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.

Volunteer Session Photos & Update

Progress is amazing but keeping it neat and tidy is on-going!  Thank you to all our loyal volunteers who are in the park every Wednesday from 10.00-12.30.  Please join us for as much (or little) time as you can spare.

We need to strim the grass around the benches where the mowers don’t reach.  If anyone has a petrol/ battery operated strimmer, please do come along and help.

FoWP Volunteer Session Wed 9 Dec 10.00-12.00

We are having another volunteer session on Wednesday 9th December to finish planting the native bluebells and wood anemones in the area behind the BMX track.  This will be our final get together this year so please join us if you can.  It would be helpful to know numbers so please advise Sue Britton or Steve Telford if you plan to join us…. we can easily work socially distanced in the wooded area.
