In August we welcomed the team from Froglife
to Winsford Gardens. They led a fun and very informative workshop on
the wildlife in Britain with emphasis on amphibians such as frogs and
newts. Local families came along and learned about these fascinating
creatures and how to encourage them in this urban environment.
We want to say a big thank you to all the team at Froglife for creating such a great event.
Another Big Thank you
We are delighted to announce that we are the
recipients of a grant from the Greggs Community Foundation. The
mission of the Greggs Foundation is to "make a difference to the lives
of people in need in the heart of Greggs' local communities." With the
money we are able to replace our broken down raised beds. We can now
raise them up to a level that can be enjoyed by wheel chair users in the
park. Thank you Greggs!
Other projects in the park
We have now put up some of the bug hotels that the
brownies helped us make last month. They look very smart on the fence
and hopefully will be filled with guests very soon.
We have also decorated our other raised beds
with paintings created by children from our open day and our
volunteers. They looks very bright and cheerful.
We are now beginning to think about projects
for autumn and winter. We will be finishing our new raised beds and
continuing our work to improve our growing area.
We continue to get strong volunteer numbers and are always happy to have feedback from the local community who use the park.
