Here's what we are planning for 2015

  • Replacement of  the rotting wooden play train in the Children's Play area
  • Renovatation and resurfacing of the gravel events area and pathways, which have just become muddy after 10 years of hard use
  • Planting a deliciously attractive bed full of ornamental grasses
  • Installation of fixed outdoor lighting for events* to make it easier to hold night-time events, like the Carols and Opera Evening

Fixing the Play Train, Re-surfacing etc. - a one minute survey wil help us get this done!

  • The beloved wooden play train in the children’s play area is woefully rotten and needs replacing.

  • The gravel events area and pathways are muddy and worn down after 10 years’ hard use and need renovating.

  • A new bed of ornamental grasses to replace the sad laurel bush would look fantastic

We’ve been invited to apply for a grant from BIFFA Award for these desperately needed projects,  but we have to demonstrate need and support from the community – i.e. YOU! We need a minimum of 500 participants in the following survey – it takes one minute and is super easy. Just click the link HERE and please spread the word! Responses must be in by 7th April. Thank you so much!

* Great News. We've been awarded funding from the Lottery to install fixed lighting in the Dell. With a bit of luck it will be in place for the Midsummer Concert on Saturday 13th June.

The Dell is closed on Monday mornings until 12.30pm for the gardening club.
