Advent Tree Dressing & Woodchipping the Paths – Saturday 29th November

Tree-Dressing-photos-863x350There are two tasks to do in the Park this weekend to get it ready for the season and the Lantern Parade on 7th December.

Job 1 – Spreading woodchip on the paths to make them less slippy: this worked well last year.  A pile of wood chip has been left at the Farm gate, and this needs to be spread along the paths around.   If anyone has time between now and Saturday to do a little bit,  don’t let us stop you :-).  However,  we will be carrying out this task on Saturday morning 29th November at 10am.   Bring a wheelbarrow if you have one,  a spade a rake.   We found last year that many hands made light work of this.

Job 2 – Advent tree dressing.   We will do this on Saturday afternoon 29th November (hope it doesn’t rain all day), between 2 – 3pm.  We’ll be decorating one or both of the silver birch trees on the top.    We hope that people will continue to add to the decorations during Advent.   We will decorate with wool, strips of cloth,  and other, suitable seasonally coloured decorations.  Moon’s have their sale on Saturday morning, and they have a bag of cloth offcuts;  you can delve in there and find long strips of wool, and they are happy for you to take them away.  (Make sure it is the scrap offcuts, and not the pieces of material.)
