Sensory Garden planting : ​Wednesday 8 June 2016

Some of our volunteers have been busy in the Sensory Garden starting to make use of this award.  Many thanks to the team that assembled on Saturday ready to transfer a delivery of compost into the flower beds.  That has been followed up today by numerous new plants being put into the beds.

So a huge thank you to our volunteers who have helped to make the Sensory Garden such a delight, and thanks also to the People's Postcode Lottery for their funding.

Here are a few pictures of today's activities:

We were of course absolutely delighted to have been awarded £20,000 recently by the People's Postcode Lottery with the money to go towards planting in Page Park.


We have purchased lots of plants for planting in various locations around the park using a grant from the Peoples Postcode Lottery.  The first batch of plants were planted at our first 'Planting Party' around the new cafe building.  See below

This is Phase 1 of the new flower beds.

Future planting days at the end of September and end of October will be confirmed soon. All help appreciated, if you have spade, trowel etc please bring along and we usually gather for a bacon sandwich at the Bean Tree Cafe before we start.  If you would like to help then please let us know so we can get an idea of numbers.

Planting Party : Wednesday 6 Sept 2017 : 9.30 to 2.30pm 

A huge THANK YOU to all the volunteers who came along to our planting session this morning.

We had lots of help of all ages and the beds look amazing.

There will be a couple more planting parties arranged for the coming weeks so more opportunities for people to come along and help make the park look lovely!

Planting Party #2 : Wednesday 4 October 2017  : 9.30 to 2 pm.

We are having another garden planting session next Wednesday 4th October 9.30am-2pm lots of plants are being delivered so we need lots of help.

This time we are planting the new bed opposite the War Memorial and possibly around the clock tower.
If people can bring tools that would be helpful.

Can you help? Please let us know.
