We were subject to all kinds of weather yesterday but succeeded in planting our new "Rose Wall" hedge around the rear borders of the War Memorial Beds.
We've installed a temporary barrier around the borders to try and protect the roses while they get established. We hope this will encourage people to keep their dogs off the beds and stop walking across them too.
This is part of our plans to commemorate the approaching centenaries of WWI (1914-1918) in the park and we hope it will be well established by 2014.

The next scheduled Task Day is Saturday 11 May 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.
