You may have been faithfully walking the dog in the Park in the rain or just hit the occasional sunny day so far, but hopefully you’ve seen the crocuses and daffodils appearing here and there. These are the results of planting over the last 3 years.
In November 2019 nine determined volunteers planted many new bulbs – courtesy again of Royal Borough of Greenwichl- mostly along the walkway from the top field to the Rowton Road slopes. Paul and Les tackled the perennial brambles to open up the old allotment loop path off Dothill.
Here are a few photos to say thanks for everyone’s efforts.
The Parks and Open Spaces department have once again given us 1000 crocus bulbs and 1000 native daffodil bulbs to enhance springtime in the Park. Kids are particularly good bulb planters…
We’ll meet at the bottom of the main path where it crosses the Green Chain Walk. Come along and help create some pockets of sunshine for the new year, adding to the ones we planted last year.
Bring a trowel or small shovel, and gloves. If the weather is anything but steady rain, we will have a go!
Formed in 2006, the Friends of Shrewsbury Park encourage the use of Shrewsbury Park and support the development of facilities for recreation, education and amenities for local people and to encourage a sense of community around the park.
