The long-awaited day arrived on 29 March – work began on the installation of a new drinking fountain for the benefit of all Park users. Steve and Jack struggled with the geology of this hill, but four holes and a lot of sweat later they managed to successfully lay the pipework from the pavement at the Plum Lane entrance.

Thank you very much to everyone who turned out for bulb planting. The weather was kind and we managed to find homes for all 1000 crocuses and 1000 native daffodils. After scientifically considering the light, drainage, views – and if we could manage to get a trowel or spade into the ground – we planted in several areas which will be revealed this spring.

Get off that computer and get outside!
There are 2000 free bulbs to plant in our lovely Park, come and join in for an hour or two.
We will meet at 2pm in the middle of the woods by the large fallen oak tree. Hope to see you there!
The Management Committee
In case you missed it, we enjoyed a fascinating wander amongst the trees last Saturday, discovering so much about the Park’s treasured trees and habitats. Following that successful walk, John Denton will be leading a butterfly walk this Saturday.
He aims to help you:
1) Identify the summer butterflies in the park.
2) Try to observe the differences between the sexes.
3) Link their behaviour to the different habitats in the park.
Meet by the carpark notice board. Route will be off and on the paths, so please contact email@example.com to help us accommodate mobility issues. This is a very much a weather dependent walk, and if the forecast is for heavy cloud, rain or showers it will not take place.
Here’s hoping for a sunny day!
