Very many thanks to the 24+ people who turned up this morning to help with the Park Action Day. With teams inside the hall, on the recreation ground & in the play area a big impression was made all round with litter picked, shrubs pruned, weeds & brambles cleared, windows cleaned & furniture steam cleaned to mention just a few of the jobs done! We look forward to even more people coming to help next time on 24th June when we need to get the site looking it’s best ready for the fete.

Children’s craft table
Do come & help! We have lots of wildflower seeds & some shrubs to plant in the gaps in the play area.
the tree that had blown over onto the back of the hall and roof, luckily no real damage
was caused, as well as finishing removing rubbish and bramble from the play area ditch.
As it is really too late in the season for planting we have decided to concentrate on ensuring
the bank is weed free before planting the donated Woodland Trust hedging saplings
and Grow Wild seeds in early autumn.
Very many thanks to everyone who came to help tidy the play area . We cleared numerous trailer-loads of brambles and dead wood, several bags of assorted rubbish and even discovered a dumped bathroom basin!
As a temporary measure some plastic fencing has been put in place to keep the ditch out of bounds until the strands of barbed wire etc can be removed and a permanent fence installed to fill the far end gap. All helpers welcome to help with the next session!
