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.

Please come and help with this special initiative. Let’s tidy up the winter litter and get the park looking it’s best ready for the Easter egg hunt! Wear suitable clothing and footwear, please bring tools if you want to tackle any pruning etc. No unaccompanied children.
Do come & help! We have lots of wildflower seeds & some shrubs to plant in the gaps in the play area.
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!
A very busy few hours were spent in the recreation ground clearing and burning more brambles and other rubbish from behind the garages, as well as removing a trailer load of paving slabs and builder’s rubble that had been dumped in and beside the children’s play area. There is still a great deal more to be done in the play area and we hope to have another go at it, probably on the 25th April. Lots of helpers would be appreciated to get the job done!
