In 2018 we held 24 task days, working over 1,000 volunteer hours and it was great to get our 2019 season underway.

After clearing glass, a banister rail and a beer barrel (empty unfortunately) from the park we started bashing saplings that had self-seeding in the woodland walk area while others worked on tidying flowerbeds and shrub beds throughout the park.

We began maintenance in the Infants Play Area, where some shrubs have been over-growing the play area surface.

We also did the usual litter-picking and removed the wreaths from around the War Memorial.

Less pleasant was having to remove lots of dog mess from in and around the flowerbeds before we could begin work on them.

Visitors to the park seemed happy to see us back too and kindly deposited over £25 in our collection bucket. Thank you!
