New benches in!

Our new benches are now installed on the Park. Some new places to sit in quieter parts of the space.

So we now have the new noticeboard and the new seats. Not bad for some spring improvements (although more are to come)

We raised money for these improvements by book sales and raffles, but also by applying to funds. We are very grateful to the Grassroots Fund, the Councillors Community Initiative Fund and to Liverpool City Council and Glendales for their help with installation.

Meeting.. and litter pick

Our next General meeting is this Friday (15th April)

We meet at Long Lane Church at 6 30pm.

Some of us are committee members but anyone is welcome and we are keen to hear from and meet new people.

If you want a bit of exercise, why not join us on Saturday (16th April) for a Litter Pick on the park. We meet at 10 30 am outside the Leisure Centre.

Noticeboard here.. and benches coming

Have you seen our new noticeboard? We raised money for it and it's great to see it there.

Not only does it mark one of the park entrances, it means we have a place to put up posters - not just about the Friends but about other community things.

Here's a picture (admitedly not very good as it was a bit sunny when we took it) but do go and have a look for yourself.

Meanwhile, the bases are in for the benches and wer're all impatiently waiting for the seats themselves.
