Manor Park Autumn Community Morning

10am – 2pm, 28th September 2019 (Meet on the grass by the railway bridge)

This is our first volunteer morning of the autumn/winter period. We always use this session to give the park a deep clean, in the shape of a litter-pick after a summer of hard use. We will also be doing tasks to maintain our existing work, including around the seasonal pond, the meadow area facing the Malden Road/South Lane, around the community bird-feeders at the back of the park, and maintenance of our wild-flower areas.

We will be replenishing paths with wood-chip, pruning trees and undergrowth, bramble bashing and generally making the park look much more cared for.

As ever there will be a gazebo on the grassy area by the railway bridge where refreshments will be served at midday. A good opportunity for a chat and a gossip.

You can work with us all morning or just pop along for an hour or so. When you arrive head to the gazebo and a helper will point you in the direction of someone who can help you find a task and some people to work with. Our team will be in hi-viz jackets.

Gloves and equipment will be provided. You are very welcome to bring your own. We also recommend wearing rough clothes, and something waterproof if it looks like rain.

Children are very welcome, but MUST be accompanied by an adult. Litter-picking would be an ideal task. We cannot take responsibility for any children.

If you have any questions or would like to get more involved in the community effort at Manor Park please drop the team an email at
