A good maintenance program for the upkeep of any ground and work should start in partnership with Local Council, We do not clash with the Councils statutory obligations.
The goal is to create trainee opportunities for gardeners and other skills needed around the park who will be taught and trained in the field. We expect this two year program will give this trainee a good starting point of general gardening knowledge.
Everyone should be welcome to get involved and to help create an inclusive, safe and exciting space where we can all enjoy the fruits of nature.
The aim is to create an open area that can cater for the needs of many people by providing, as well as a quiet and reflective place, a happy and welcoming environment to share with the group, to enjoy events and sport and where people can develop respect for the environment.
By keeping the park in good order over and above the Councils statutory duties, will often result in less littering, anti social behaviour and graffiti will occur and park users will be encouraged to care for their space in the longer term.
