Giant Hogweed has been found by the irrigation pond and beside trees on the Golf Course. It has been treated and will be monitored.
The tree was planted in memory of Scott at the request of Margaret Butterfield who works at the Co-op. Scott died of a brain tumour and left behind his wife and two young children. Scott and his family were regular walkers in Westminster Park and it is hoped the memorial tree will bring back memories of happier times.
The Friends of Westminster Park Annual General Meeting is being held at 8.00pm on Wednesday 25th January 2023 at Westminster Park Community Centre, Five Ashes Road, Chester CH4 7QS. We hope you will be able to attend.

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.

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:
Whatever you bring, please also ensure that you have suitable footwear and sturdy gloves.
A little edging along the side of the tennis courts today to keep out of the sun! More weeding of the formal flowerbeds and pruning the hedge by the Golf Shop.
