Park Action Day

Do come along to help, lots of different jobs to do inside & out!


Tidy Up Day


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.

Park Action Day

images (1)Thanks to all those who helped at today’s Park Action Day. We managed to remove

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.
