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 third Working Party of 2017 will be on Saturday April 22nd 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.
this we will meet on Saturday 20th May
part of the June Working Party we are planning to plant out the reed bed at the
east end of the lake. This will either be on the 17th June or 24th June
dependant on when we are due to receive the plants. Currently these are being propagated
at the nursery in Yorkshire.
