We completed our last scheduled task day of 2015 yesterday and were rewarded by a lady who gave us £50 insisting that we spend it on our Christmas Do! Thank you!

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 30 January 2016 and we'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 2 pm.

We may squeeze an extra one in over the Christmas period and will post here if we do.

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.

A double task day this week on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th, with help from Brabyns Preparatory School Pupils has ensured that the park looks the best it can for today's Remembrance Service.

A very BIG thank you to @BPS for your help!

A beautiful autumn day in the park on Saturday planting crocuses and clearing leaves!

The next scheduled Task Day is an extra one on Saturday 7 November 2015 to ensure that the park looks its best for the Remembrance Service on Sunday. We'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 2 pm. We are also supporting a special task day with pupils from Brabyns Preparatory School on Friday 6 November when they will be helping us tidy leaves for Remembrance too.

Our first task day using power tools but most of the grafting was still by hand in the flowerbeds. Our volunteers were grateful for the fantastic comments received from park users too. Read more about what we did here: http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/task-days/task-days-in-2015.html

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!
