It was another successful visit to Nunsmoor Park for their monthly volunteer's day.

'The Regs' were out in force - myself, Andrew, Charlotte, Miranda and Aimee (425 good deeds between us!) It's always such a great task with organised and thankful owners, plus tea and biscuits afterwards, so it would be great to have some new runners join us next time!

This month, our tasks were to weed the flower bed near the park entrance, tidy up the edging of the paths, and plant some bulbs ready to pop up in spring. Charlotte took on the edging while we all weeded and planted.

"Lots of plants planted, as well as 100 tulip bulbs, in the beds in the fenced area at the entrance by Brighton Grove corner, so that area will be fabulous in the Spring. Lots of path edging done to try and alleviate the very boggy and often flooded area near the old bandstand area. So...big THANKS" - Jill , Friends of Nunsmoor

The whole area was looking very tidy by the time we'd finished and though our fingers were numb, it had been a very worthwhile job!
