Park springs back to life during glorious weather

Task Day 26 March 2022This is probably the earliest we've ever needed to consider applying sunscreen before a task day!

A really busy and productive day saw our volunteers cleaning under the former Bowling Pavilion canopy ready for painting before we install our centenary artwork later in the year. We also chopped up a huge tree branch that had been brought down by high winds earlier in the year and created a small wildlife haven from the arisings. Many other volunteers got stuck into flowerbed maintenance behind the library, in the Jubilee bed in front of the library, the toilet block bed, and of course the main flowerbeds and memorial beds.

We also got started on annual maintenance such as painting the edges of the steps at the Bowling Green the exact same colour as the fabulous display of daffodils throughout the park.

You may notice that we now have a new flag flying from our second flagpole as a display of our support for the people of Ukraine.

Last but not least, thank you to park visitors, who kindly popped over £17 in our collection bucket.
