FoRP working party

November 9 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm


Planting daffodil bulbs assisted by school children

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 workingparty@forp.org

The weather on Saturday is going to be cold but dry. We will be joined by some Park Runners, so it could be a 3 flask coffee break. I would like to:  clear the mud from the outdoor gym.  Cut back lots more tree shoots from the edge of Upper Lake.  Finish cleaning the landing stage.
and
If we have time work on the Upper Lake Perimeter Path and even slash a bit of the old wild flower garden.
