Last weekend's task day was the first we've ever missed (due to holidays) but very pleased to see our volunteers barely noticed and just cracked on with the good work!

There is also some details of work done during the week before, on 23 May.

Read more about was done here: http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/task-days.html

The next scheduled Task Day is Saturday 10 June 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.



To learn more about what we do for the park check out our fantastic promotional video created by one of our regular volunteers:

We did managed to squeeze an extra task day in before 2016 ended, on New Year's Eve, and had a great turnout despite several regular volunteers who are unwell not being able to make it.

As it was a special day we took our refreshments at Samuel Oldknow's instead of the mess room in the park. I for one could get used to this!
