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.

Below you’ll see the events planned, so far, and we hope they whet your appetite to get outdoors in the Park!
Spring has sprung and so have loads of brambles around the Park! Meet on the Dothill path near the nature reserve entrance gate…
The winter we may like to imagine…
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
The weather looks reasonable for Saturday so you have another chance to buy these beautiful calendars in the open air. Still only £5 each, in aid of the drinking fountain fund.
This week you will find the calendar table at the top end of Dothill Road where it opens out onto the slope to Rowton Road. And please note the hours are 10am to 2pm.
See you there unless it’s pouring with rain.
Come and get your fabulous Shrewsbury Park calendars – treat yourself and stock up for Christmas presents! All profits go to the drinking fountain fund.
There will be a table staffed by smiley committee members by the notice board next to the Plum Lane carpark starting at 8.30 am. So bring your cash along with your dogs and be first in line!
If it’s raining we will reschedule, so watch this space…
