It's been a busy weekend for the The Park volunteers, remodelling the pond, strimming, mowing and tidying up ready for warmer weather. Well done everyone looking amazing!
So who was listening to Radio Humbersides "Absolutely Clueless" feature this morning? We were the final clue and Lucy got the prize this week!
We were thrilled to get a visit and to talk about The Park live on air!
Our revised Parklings timetable for the coming couple of months!
Just a reminder that each young person must be accompanied by an adult and sign in to each activity (and fill in registration forms if it's your first attendance). All very welcome.

The Park was looking beautiful in tonight's sunshine... lovely daffodils planted by the Parklings in the orchard, some beautiful tulips planted around an adopted tree and the first blossom in the orchard too.
We are (nearly) ready for action!
We will be continuing the development of The Park and finishing off jobs from last year during April, May, June and July.
We would love volunteers to come and help us with tasks such as pond development, weeding, finishing the entrance path, creating an agility trail with big logs, adjusting the grass mound for the slide to be fitted and lots, lots more...
We will be meeting at 10am each day on the following dates:
April 28th & 29th
May 12th & 13th
June 9th & 10th
July 14th & 15th
Each volunteers event is likely to end with a group BBQ to say thank you.
We would be hugely grateful for your help - however much or little you can provide.
Specific information to be provided in the build up to each weekend - but in general gardening gloves, a wheelbarrow or bucket, trowel and spade would be useful kit to bring along.
Children are welcome to come and play - but the physical volunteering is for adults.
Thanks as ever for your support. This amazing community creation could not have happened without all you fabulous people.
