Friends of the Park planted 5,000 crocus bulbs, provided by the council to commemorate Stockport's fallen in all conflicts, in beautiful sunshine on our task day yesterday.

Read more about what we did here: http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/task-days/task-days-in-2016.html

The next scheduled Task Day is Saturday 31 December - this will go ahead if enough volunteers choose to do it but if you are a new volunteer thinking of joining in please check first!

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:

A couple of much needed new volunteers were most welcome to boost our depleted ranks during the holiday season yesterday.

We completed a variety of tasks including plans for an improved floral display at Danny Winter's bench. We hope that visitors will treat these with the respect they deserve and that they'll soon be overflowing with colour.

A great day was had by all during our task day on Saturday and the 2nd Treasure Hunt organised by Julian Wadden. The Hunt was a great success and we'll update the specific event thread when we have a confirmed figure for the total money raised. In the meantime, read more about the day here:

A very busy weekend for Friends of the Park started with another productive task day on Saturday, although there is sad news about our popular tree sculpture.

The next scheduled Task Day is Saturday 28 May and we'd be delighted if you can come along for however long you can between 10 am and 2 pm.

The task day will run in parallel with the Family Treasure Hunt organised with Julian Wadden.
