The Friends hold Working Parties on the 3rd Saturday of the month from 9:30am - noon, meeting by the tennis courts. Note this may be changed when clashing with Bank Holidays of Events
Among other things we have maintained paths in the wood, cleared wood from the ditches, cleaned the signs, built the sensory beds, planted trees, painted railings. On occasions we have involved cubs & scouts and preschools. We can always do with more people coming along for what is a very rewarding morning.
The fifth Working Party of 2017 will be on Saturday June 17th when we plan to tidy up the hedges around the Hillhouse entrance and remove redundant artificial material from the old pitch and putt tees. Plenty of work do do and the more hands will make light work.
Following this we will meet on Saturday 15th July
Note - We may need to arrange a special Working Party to carry out the planting of the reed bed at the East end of the Lake. This is dependant on the regrading of the bank and also the delivery of the plants which are being propagated at a nursery in Yorkshire.
