Working to improve the path around Waterloo Lake
Twice every month, usually the 2nd Saturday and the 4th Thursday, a number of FoRP members get together to carry out various tasks in the park, to enhance its appearance, and improve the visitor experience.
Typical tasks include bulb planting, ground preparation and wild flower seed planting, clearing footpaths, cutting back overhanging branches, removing Himalayan Balsam, removing brambles, etc.
Everyone is welcome to join us and help, including well behaved children and well behaved dogs. We provide all necessary tools together with gloves and a Hi Vis vest.
We normally meet at 10am at the Carriage House (behind the Roundhay Fox pub) on Mansion Lane, where the tools are stored.
If you have any questions, want to know what work is planned, or confirm the meeting place, please email email@example.com
Saturday is looking sunny but cold. Just the weather for clearing a few paths and finishing cutting back saplings at the edge of upper lake. The No1 priority is the path past the new fern and cowslip garden. It looks like mainly leaves (V slippy), but I am sure there will be a bit of mud for the hard core among you. If we get sufficient numbers we could make a start on the track/path past the sham castle.
