We had a fantastic afternoon and our longest ever Parklings today! We started by planting strawberries, blackcurrants, raspberries and rhubarb at the allotment (huge thank you to Henleys Nursery - Market Weighton, who donated 3 bags of compost, 3 bags of bark chippings and 3 sacks of mushroom compost to us to "encourage the next generation of gardeners").... we then called in at Linda's and had a great time pond dipping and finished off at The Park... the Parklings dispersed nearly 4 hours later... Huge thanks to everyone for the fun - well over 20 of us. We had a great time. 🌳🐸🌳
We are delighted to announce that we have been successful with the 2019 - 2020 East Riding of Yorkshire Council's "Positive Activities Grant." This will fund more youth activity in the coming 12 months which will centre around physical activity, outdoor artistic creativity and wildlife enhancement. We are hugely grateful to ERYC for their support once again, and to our fabulous volunteers for their ongoing enthusiasm.
Last night at Parklings, we had a super evening making and learning about volcano's. Huge thanks to the lab rascals for a super and very enjoyable session (for all ages!).
A great turnout at Parklings today for the pond clearing - the 20 or so of us made good progress around the pond, ready for wildflower plug plants to be planted and seeds to be sown soon! Simultaneously the Ha-Ha was being cleared!
Next Friday evening we have a Lab Rascals Science Experiment session at the Village hall. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would to come along. Places are limited...
