We have copies of designs for us to share at the next Resident’s Association meeting which will be at the Rectory Farm Community Centre on Tuesday, February 18th at 7:30pm. Please come along and see them…

Here’s a preview of the designs:

In the summer we hope to put on a children’s activity in the Pocket Park as we have done in the past couple of years. Keep checking this blog for updates as we will be asking you to choose the activity with a vote!

We’ll also be planning regular work-parties to keep the park tidy, planting, weeding paths etc…. Please have a look at the Provisional Diary. The first one is March 1st 2-4 pm.
