A beautiful day in the park yesterday when, amongst other things we planted a large number of rockery plants, parsley and strawberries provided by local gardeners Les and Jean White, for which we are very grateful. You will often see Les and Jean at local car boot sales selling the things they grow on their allotment but they gave all this to Friends of the Park for free  Grin

It was a lovey sunny day for our special Remembrance weekend Task Day and it's a good job we decided to do this as we discovered that the handrails on the memorial had been vandalised overnight. It's hard to find the words to express our contempt for this kind of act but at least we were in a position to do something about it and were able to carry out a temporary repair.

We had another great response from our volunteers at short notice and people attending the Remembrance Service should be able to see the results. As well as removing leaves and hoeing the flower beds we painted a litter bin that had been desperate for a coat of paint and cleared the leaves all the way down the main drive into the park. It was particularly good to have families with children helping out on a beautiful autumn day. Thank you everyone for your help.

Our last Task Day of 2011 is on Saturday 26 November and we'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 1 pm.

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

Our last Task Day of 2011 yesterday was quieter in terms of number of volunteers but still achieved a great deal and it's been another successful year. Read about them here: http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/task-days.html

With the council having to make increased cost savings over the coming years and the proposed transfer of Parks Staff to SSK the role of Friends groups will become even more important if the standards of our parks are to be maintained, let alone improved as we have been doing.

If anyone is interested in helping out in our park we'd love to hear from you.
