Afternoon was a great success for the tree planting. We had a great turnout from the Scouts who helped us get the rest of the trees planted. What we did notice though was the sheer number of members of the public who turned out to help. With 20 people in the morning and about 30 in the afternoon that was a great turn out.
The trees were planted in 8 different locations throughout the park. and hopefully they will remain weather and vandal proof! The rain came on in the afternoon after a dry morning but it didn’t seem to deter folks. it’s great to see that the people of the town are willing to come out and support their local park. With the trees and the interpretative panels it’s been a great year for the Friends of the park as we’ve managed to make a lasting difference to the park and the people using it. Long may this continue and long may the community spirit shown today in the park!
Thanks so much to everyone who turned out today – you were a credit to the town!
