Adding a lick of paint around the park

As part of our continued maintenance work within the park, we managed to get all the wooden animal sculptures and orienteering posts varnished.

Luckily we had sunny skies and equal numbers. This meant we were able to work in pairs and managed to get all the painting completed in record time.

The painting session certainly paid off, with our wooden animals and posts looking very smart, and more importantly, protected from the elements. This will hopefully allow them to last for years to come and give locals the opportunity to enjoy them. 
Some local residents walking their dog were thrilled to see the work being carried out and even joked that our wooden frog needed a hat to protect him from the sun.

If you get a spare moment on a sunny evening, please do take a walk through the nature path we’ve recently installed and see if you can spot all the lovely wooden creatures hiding in the bushes. Or alternatively download our orienteering map and see if you can find all the posts. Remember to send us pictures on our Facebook page!

Our next event will be taking place on the 27th of July 2019, from 9.30am – 10.30am. We’re still awaiting confirmation from Peter on our next tasks for the park and will update the website accordingly.

If you would like to get involved, please do! We love having new volunteers and meetings new faces. We usually meet by the main noticeboard, in the middle of the park, where our park ranger briefs us on the day’s activities.
