A mix of work on flowerbeds, shrub beds and paths was carried out by a small group of volunteers yesterday, while several others received power-tools training. We also did some work on Lock 17.

Read more about what we did here: http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/task-days/task-days-in-2015.html

The next scheduled Task Day is Saturday 11 July 2015 and we'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 2 pm.

Stout footwear and suitable clothing should be worn and bring your own gardening gloves and small hand tools if you have them. Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Rather damp yesterday but a handful of volunteers decided to brave the weather. It's this dedication that makes your park so good!

As mentioned in the Treasure Hunt post, we had a great day on Saturday with lots of work on flowerbeds and benches while the hunt was on.

We were pleased to welcome a new volunteer with her baby yesterday, definitely our youngest ever volunteer but he kept nodding off on the job!

We saw both sides of park users during our task day yesterday; those who leave broken bottles spread around the park where they can hurt people and animals and others who put money in our bucket and even buy us drinks and chocolate treats to say thank you. I know which ones I prefer!

With heavy rain, vandalism, offensive graffiti and dog mess in the park, homemade cakes brought along by one of our volunteers were definitely the highlight of yesterday's task day.

We've decided to cancel the task day scheduled for tomorrow and go to the pub instead.

The next scheduled Task Day is Saturday 28 February but we may fit a replacement one in depending on the weather.
