Next Friends Walks and Events"..... (as at July 2021)

Sunday September 26th;  History Walk, learn about the parks creation and  early history.  Starts at 2pm from the Mansion steps. (check  this page nearer the  date in case Covid guidelines or the weather cause cancellation)

Sensory Garden Workdays may be cancelled at short notice if guidelines require it. But we are running some workdays every two weeks. Email for details and to get on our workday mailing list.

Sensory Garden workdays have recommenced approximately every two weeks. We are monitoring the Covid/Coronavirus guidelines which meant we had to suspend events  - apologies  and best wishes to everyone.

Some events include periods of standing while looking at specimens and features. A typical walk around the park is about 2 or 3 miles.  Time taken can vary between 1 and 3 hours but people can leave an event whenever they like provided they can find their own way out of the park.
Officially the gates to the road into the park are closed at dusk, so if staying in the park after dark we advise people to park outside.

Sensory Garden   

The Sensory Garden is open and in use by park visitors.   The changing seasons will be reflected by the type of plants growing, in flower or seeding.   Friends volunteers are continuing to maintain the garden and plant new plants when necessary and suitable.  Regretably someone occasionally steals plants which volunteers have planted for the enjoyment of all park users.
If you want to join the volunteers just turn up on the dates and times above or contact us for more details. Even if you don't know anything about gardening this is a good place to start with the help of other volunteers.
