Results of our first planting

Back in the colder weather, a group from Friends of Garston Park planted some crocuses in two parts of the park. Member Mark Helsby took these pictures earlier this year when the crocuses were in bloom. We hope soon to also plant some wildflowers and to organise planters with even more flowers at the entrance to the park.

Litter Pick in the Park

There's a litter pick in the park on May 15th ( a Saturday). Long Lane Church is kindly providing breakfast at 9 am. It's part of a morning of litter picking involving two other local churches - the Bridge Chapel and All Souls. The event ends around 1pm at Bridge Chapel with a lunch. The organisers say everyone is welcome to help and in fact there were between 70 and 80 people last year. Litter picks, gloves and rubbish bags are provided by the Council.
