Thank you Mabel! I've taken the liberty of moving your comment here to the Friends of the Park Task Day thread.

The Friends of the Park web site has been updated with details of our Task Day yesterday www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/task-days.html

The next scheduled Task Day is Saturday 25 August and we'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 2 pm.

If the weather is OK we will again be in need of skilled painters who can help paint the red bits of the Infants Play Area fence without splashing it all over the cream!

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.

Well done to all the volunteers.  I walked through the park this week and the flower beds looked fantastic.

The Friends of the Park web site has been updated with details of our Task Day yesterday when, as well as doing the normal stuff, our contractor for the hard landscaping works on the Diamond Jubilee Project was able to lay the bricks and coping for the new raised bed:

Our web site has been updated with details of our Task Day on 26 May:

The next scheduled Task Day is Saturday 9 June and we'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 1 pm.
