Nature Trail repairs – Sun 12 June 10 – 12 noon

Can you spare 2 hours this Sunday to spread wood chips on the Nature Trail alongside Birchall Farm? Mark May, a local tree surgeon, kindly donated the wood chips last month and has also offered to help. Sections are worn and the winter months also took its toll. Please bring along a rake or spade if you have one.

The mile long Nature Trail initiative was started by Friends of Moneyhole as an all season woodland walk back in 2009. We meet at 10 am by the POW footpath and allotments junction after the play areas. Bring along a friend or two.

Picnic in the Park – Sat 02 July 4 – 6 pm

This year’s annual Picnic in the Park is on Sat 02 July. Come and enjoy the park on a warm Saturday afternoon and meet other friendly folks. Bring your own picnic and something to sit on. Well behaved dogs on leads and tethered are always welcomed. Bring along a neighbour.

Meet by the Wyton park entrance.
