Too damp to continue fence painting, a tidy up of the Reading Circle behind the library was the order of the day for Friends of Memorial Park on Saturday!

Read more about our task day here: http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/task-days/task-days-in-2018.html

The next scheduled Task Day is Saturday 15 September 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.

Our task day on Saturday was hampered by high winds and intermittent rain, so we had to stop painting but there was plenty of other work done!

We squeezed in a special task day with Marple College today. Public Services students Gina and Sarah with their teacher Adam helped friends of the Park spread 6 tonnes of top-up material onto the French Boules Court.

A busy day in the park on Saturday with volunteers at work, the Family Treasure Hunt and Little Growers running side-by-side.

The Treasure Hunt was a great success and we'll provide a separate update on that when all the money is counted.

It was great to get back into the park today for our first task day of 2018! As well as planting another 1,000 bulbs (donated by Open Gardens in Marple - who won them from Parker's) we rescued the Poppy Rocks painted by local children during last year's Remembrance period and put them back on display.
