Over the last two years less organized improvement work has been done on the Park as we were unable to set up the area working parties we’d planned in 2019. Instead a number of people have taken on different areas and maintained them on an individual basis. From the entrances to the orchard to walls, and litter picking we’d like to thank everyone who has contributed their time and effort.

Now, however, is the time to get more organized again and work on improvements in working parties. Each party will be responsible for improving a set area of the Park.

The first area to be tackled is the Nethercliffe Entrance. There will be a meeting tomorrow, Monday 1st November, 7pm in the Ings with Chris Parapia and Martyn Hornsby Smith for anyone interested in joining in this working party. Work will start on 21st November to spruce up the entrance for Christmas, time to be confirmed.

Later there will be a working party organized for

  • Hillside Entrance/Jubilee Walk
  • The Greenshaw Entrance, Wood and Wildflower Meadow
  • The two copses and Woodland

If you are interested in improving the Nethercliffe Entrance come along on either date above. And if you are interested in joining one of the other working parties, please send you name and contact details to Martyn Hornsby Smith at
