Join us for our next work party in the Pocket Park

We managed to grab a sunny spot between the showers for our May Pond Work Party. Seven attended and Neil and Richard trimmed overhanging branches along the path while David and Robert cut back the bushes behind the pond. Jackie tried out the new flame weeder along the path and Judith and Anne weeded around the noticeboard and seats and topped up with wood chips. As the signs were too wet to paint on the day, we left David with some Cuprinol to do the job in his own time. Judith helped me to plant the snowdrops opposite the pond which were promptly mown off by the Northampton Borough Council contractors, but as they were already dying back they should grow again next year. The next Work Party will be on Saturday 1st June from 10-12.00 mid-day when we will be litter picking and weeding the path by the marsh. We may also need to tackle some graffiti on one of the signs. We will leave the bigger job on the underpass to the councils contractors!
