This Sunday, from 10-12, we continue with our Autumn bulb planting sessions in Chris’ Wood (by the Art Pavilion).

We have hundreds of wood anemones (being soaked overnight!) and a similar number of snowdrops to plant. This is our fifth year of planting bulbs in the park and we are making a difference.

How can you help?

Just pop along for as little or as long as you like. Moral support helps too: If you walk by just say “Hi”.

Who can come? Anyone! We have folk of all ages come: with friends, on their own, or with their kids or grandkids. (Note: Children must be accompanied by an adult).
What to wear: Dress for the weather – so something warm and a waterproof in case of showers. We have pairs of gloves, some bulb planters and hand shovels, but it would really help if you are able to bring your own. Something to kneel on is a good idea (a foam matt or even a plastic bag).
When to meet: This Sunday from 10-12.
Where to meet: We will be in Chris’ Wood (see map below), which is just south of the Art Pavilion and behind Clinton Road (by the Grove Road Texaco Garage).
Weather: As of 1pm Saturday the weather forecast is looking dry with a small chance of light showers around midday!

I do hope you can pop along for a bit – many hands make lighter work and it is surprisingly social!
