We squeezed in an extra task day last Saturday and the council has been working hard in the park all week too, so yesterday we were able to focus on the final touches before Remembrance Sunday today. With the Timeline complete and lots of work in the park including re-tarmacking of the main paths and the area where stone was stolen from the park entrance, weeds cleared by the Payback Team and leaves blown by the park attendants, the park is as ready as it can be for the 100th anniversary of the end of the war.

It speaks volumes when people say thanks and or they are vocally appreciative of the time and efforts of the volunteers.

This coming winter, such appreciation will be even more welcomed considering the bite of the cold and the snow.

I at least hope the snow doesn't come until much later.

It was a bit cold yesterday but one way to keep warm is to get stuck-in and our volunteers certainly did that!

A sad task yesterday was to remove part of the Midnight Tree Sculpture that we created in the park back in 2007.

Lots of other more positive work was completed too and it was great to see kids playing on our latest addition to the Infants Play Area.

Too damp to continue fence painting, a tidy up of the Reading Circle behind the library was the order of the day for Friends of Memorial Park on Saturday!

Our task day on Saturday was hampered by high winds and intermittent rain, so we had to stop painting but there was plenty of other work done!

Today we completed the refurbishment of the French Boules Court by compacting it with a wacker-plate hired from Wright Hire.

We squeezed in a special task day with Marple College today. Public Services students Gina and Sarah with their teacher Adam helped friends of the Park spread 6 tonnes of top-up material onto the French Boules Court.
