Yesterday was a very successful and sunny spring morning with a variety of “jobs” being completed by a good turnout of “friends”.
Josie and Chris cleared an area by the farmgate entrance to make into a new wildflower area. Many thanks to Gordon and Betty Yates for donating two wildflower “mats” and to Tony Russell Gardening for donating 12 bags of soil and compost.
Josie and Chris also added more soil to the raised beds being developed in the same area under the RHS “Edible Britain” scheme. Chris gave out free seeds given by the RHS to a number of local folk out in the park enjoying the sunshine.
Andy and Jenny were busy restoring the bench by the churnstand entrance and planting trees and Richard and Gail did a great job picking up litter from the Nethercliffe Road entrance.
We are hopeful that a new bin will be put in that area in the near future, kindly sponsored by Waite and Co local estate agents and topped up with some MICE money from Councillor Latty.
Free doggy poo bags were also given out during the morning, these have have been kindly donated by White Cross Vets.
We received lots of positive feedback from local people out enjoying the weather, which is very encouraging.
Even the council turned up with a van and three workmen to empty the bins!
