Tom and me were back at Hodgkin park to tackle the massive overgrowth of Laurel bushes bordering the upper park.
Someone had dragged up 4 wheelie bins and set fire to them right in the middle of the path and Mike, the ranger, spent a good part of the morning clearing up that act of vandalism.
After 2 hours of hard work we've managed to clear up a pretty good part of the park. We reckon the next session in three weeks time should help clear the rest of the bushes up.
There’s a greener side to our city. A vibrant, more open side. It should be celebrated, Nurtured, Enjoyed by everyone. Our allotments and parks are the lungs of our city. We’re here to breathe new life into them. We are Urban Green Newcastle.See more
