What are we up to?

Kids daffodil bulb planting

Families are invited to bring a bag of daffodil bulbs and plant them out. This is a great way to get your kids out in the open, and to show them that they can have a positive impact on their local park. We can provide tools and gloves, but it would be great if you can bring your own.

And for everyone else:

  • Spreading woodchip on paths, ready for winter
  • Installing some log stepping stones – more natural play
  • Bramble bashing (not for the faint hearted)
  • Some light tree pruning
  • Create a new cut through
  • Litter-picking

We will be providing tools and gloves, but would ask if you can bring your own gloves if you have some. We get asked if volunteers can bring their own tools – and yes, that’s very welcome.

We will of course have stringent COVID safety measures in place:

  • We will be putting people into working groups no larger than 6 and total numbers will be limited to 30 at anyone time;
  • Social distancing must be observed; all attendees will be required to provide contact details; we’ll be operating a clean/dirty tool system;
  • We will not be providing refreshments or having a large group coffee break (please bring own refreshments);
  • If you have your own gloves please bring them, but we do have brand new un-used gloves available; and
  • Hand-sanitiser will also be available.
We did debate whether or not to continue with these work mornings, but we felt that they are important from a community perspective, and they clearly fall within the guideline exemptions.
