Friends of the Park were joined by Marple and District Allotment Association during our task day yesterday.
The Allotment Association have adopted the flowerbed that was previously maintained by the Rainbows, who decided to give it up this year. We are looking forward to seeing how the Allotment Association's plans to turn the bed into a mini vegetable plot develop over the coming months.

We also installed a new display panel that explains the background and inspiration to our Diamond Jubilee Project outside the library. Read more here: http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/projects/diamond-jubilee.html
We are now switching to two Task Days per month for the spring/summer season as it was very successful last year, so the next scheduled Task Day is Saturday 13 April 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 if you have them. Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult.
