Gather next to the notice board by the Plum Lane car park. After a short intro Les Clark will lead us through the woods and glades where the bats hang out. Bat detectors supplied. Thanks to the Lottery Grant last year we have 3 more of our own. And these are available for a week’s loan (see BATS under FLORA and FAUNA in the menu bar)
New bins and benches are being installed during August and wildflower seed planting will take place during the Autumn.
The park has had so much more use over the past 20 months, and we are still seeing new faces all the time. As you might expect, there is more wear and tear on paths and grassed areas that needs attention, and we also want to introduce new facilities.
The management committee are keeping an eye out for funding opportunities and different ways of raising money to make our park even better.
If you have an idea for fundraising, please let us know – just email us! firstname.lastname@example.org
Have you noticed any water bowls tucked into hedges or by trees when walking in the park since that midsummer heatwave?
Thanks to two loyal creature/critter supporters these provide some water in what can be a very dry environment. Hard to believe at the beginning of 2021 but now…
If you would like to help, take a bottle of water with you when you walk in case they are empty. Especially when the weather gets warmer. Please leave the stones are in to provide escape route for wildlife falling in the dish – frogs, insects etc)
