Litter Pick Saturday 17th October (Balfour St entrance)

There will be a litter pick from 10.30am on Saturday 17th October.  Please meet at the Balfour Street entrance.  Equipment will be provided but please bring protective gloves if you have them and wear sturdy footwear.  Children are welcome but must be supervised.

Bulb Planting Sunday 22nd November (Balfour St entrance)

With the support of local horticulturalist Rebecca Govier, we are looking to plant a large daffodil design in Narcissus ‘Minnow’ on the rectangle of grass at the bottom of Balfour Street as you enter the park. Click to open a PDF showing suggested daffodil layout designs.  We will need a lot of volunteers to help raise the turf, plant the bulbs and then replace the turf so please do come along.
