Pilrig Park – upcoming events!

(adapted from an email from Friends of Pilrig Park)

Thank you to everyone who came along to the meeting last Monday – we will look to send the minutes out over the next few weeks.

There are a couple of upcoming work days/events that were mentioned:

  • Painting:  Saturday, 6th May – THIS SATURDAY – 10.30am (white washing the wall in preparation for the mural – the wall borders Pilrig Park school, along from the Balfour St entrance).
  • Tidy Up: Sunday, 14th May, 10.30am-12.00pm
  • Picnic In The Park: Saturday, 17th June, 11.30am – 2.30pm

If you are planning to come along on Saturday please wear old work clothes and if you have any brushes and/or rollers please also bring these along.  We will supply the paint.
Hope to see you there!

Pilrig Park clean-up rescheduled

(adapted from an email from Friends of Pilrig Park)

FoPP’s Events Calendar has a clean-up day scheduled for this weekend (12-13 November). However, because we have only just run the bulb-planting event we will look to reschedule this either later in the month or next month. Maybe a December litter pick with mince pies and mulled wine afterwards? Nothing says ‘Christmas’ quite like pulling old bits of carpet out of the woods in your local park!

LCCC suggests you contact FoPP via email (friendsofpilrigpark@gmail.com) or Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/FriendsOfPilrigPark) to find out when the event will take place. Of course, if we find out, we will be sure to post it here.

Mini-best hunt, Pilrig Park, Saturday

pilrig-park-17th-september
The RSPB are going to be running a mini-beast hunt this Saturday (17th September) from 10am until 4pm in Pilrig Park.  They will be setting up in the play park next to Pilrig Street and will be running a number of drop in sessions throughout the day.
At the moment the forecast is for a dry day but please bring along waterproofs if the rain looks like it may start!
Further information can also be found on the Friends of Pilrig Park Facebook page.
Hope to see you there!
