Events Team

Thank you to many people who turned out to plant  160 Pulmonaria border to our Jubilee Hedge and  150 Willow plants all around the park. This shows just a few of the helpers, including fabulous Fliss, Brandon Trust and Cleve House School holiday club, and of course many local residents as usual. This pic  on the right shows Kevin Lindegaard who generously donated the Willows, and the Willow copse which he planted in the south west corner.  Will all look wonderful.

As well as working to improve the park we have an Events Team who organise our community days, to encourage local people of all ages to be involved in, and feel 'ownership' for, our park. 

We also want to attract people to use the park for outdoor recreation and socialising. We hold community planting days, and launch days for new facilities, Praise in the Park, and an annual Free Community Fun Day with tables for local charities to raise funds, free children's entertainment and arena events.
