Litter pick at Viewfield Park

Our next litter pick on Monday 15th August. We’re going to gather up the litter in Viewfield Park blown about in the storm this week. It’s not a big job so we’ll start at 1.30 and it’ll probably be done by 3 or 3.30. Come and join in the fun. Meet at the Stables, opposite the Sports Club.

Upcoming! Litter Pick

Our next litter pick is going to take place on Monday 15th August, from 1.30. We’re going to clear the litter from Viewfield Park.

This is by way of preparation for our leaf mulching project which will begin in the autumn. Leaf storage areas will be erected against part of the high wall of the Park in the next couple of months.

We have got longer term plans for quite expensive,…
