With the holiday season coming there an incredibly wide and interesting choice of things to do in our small local area and around the park, we hope our newsletter is informative and helpful.
Thank you to the volunteers who without their incredible hard work last month, nothing would happen and again thank you in advanced for the next three months where they have already organised a busy schedule.
We would also like to thank the many businesses that have supported us with funds, help or raffle prizes.
With the darker evenings here to stay for some months, the setting was ideal for the Bat Watch that took place in the park in October.
Young and old alike enjoyed searching for, and finding, the bats that inhabit out park. During the same month, our sold out Halloween Murder Mystery “Carnival Killer” had us all searching for a very different character – in some cases successfully! But, whether the killer was identified, or not, everyone enjoyed the brilliant presentation by Moneypenny Productions. The buffet was excellent and the photographs featured on The Friends’ website will highlight the fun costumes that many people wore.
5th festival is set to be the best yet, with more exhibitors than ever before. Return of many favourites and new high quality exhibitors.
You can buy bottles of some of your favourite spirits.
Main ticket on sale.
We are still looking for additional volunteers to lock and unlock some of the gates to the park.
This would be particularly helpful when the existing volunteers are away, or are unable to fulfil this daily task.
Gate management is really important in keeping the park safe and tidy and any help that you can give would be very much appreciated and is a big factor in improving our area.
The locking of the additional gates in the evening has already reduced littering and anti-social behaviour.
Some people do an hour, some offer help from home and we are yet to meet them, others come and have their own preferred projects, together they have created really big difference to our park and local area. The volunteers are people like you, come and get involved.
