20170206_151524Following discussion with the Police last week, we talked with the maintenance company today about ways to make the Park more ‘secure’, and open out parts that are proving ‘troublesome’. For example, we are looking at lowering the hawthorn bushes in front of the top bench to open it out.

We have got a number of other jobs that need doing this year to make the park look loved and cared for – so watch out for news of working parties. This will cover items such as
a) pruning the community orchard,
b) ring barking old trees threatened with ivy,
c) stone wall repair

e) strimming the community orchard
f) weeding the herb garden
g) planting the bog garden
h) replacing the handrails on the Hillside steps
i) planing down and oiling the two wood benches
j) litter picks

If there is anything you would like to do in the Park to improve it email us on All help very welcome, and the more hands the better.
