The things we find in the Pocket Park

For our next Work Party on Saturday 7th July 2-4pm we’ll start by litter picking at the top of Cransley Walk, opposite Olden Road and work our way down to the marsh. Then we have the option of weeding the path or trimming the overhanging branches alongside the path and around the dog bins.

We have had some good news from NBC who are proposing to use some section 106 money (from developers) to fund replacing the top layer of the new section of path near Bridleways to make it smoother for motor buggies and pushchairs and also to install a safety rail on the steeper side and replace the dog bin to make it more accessible.

We had another sunny day for our Pond Work Party on the Saturday 9th June with 8 attending, including 2 children. Neil and John heroically had another attempt to remove the garden Pond Liner from the lake and this time were successful. They cut up the liner into small pieces and we were very grateful to Richard who picked up the pieces later and took them to the tip. We were also very grateful to a man who was trimming the hedge in Shapewood Walk and offered to collect up some dog rose trimmings which had been overhanging the path. The girls did some litter picking and Jane, Judith & Anne weeded by the Notice Board & Seats. On the way home we disturbed a very pretty Ermine Moth.
