Wednesday Gardening @StarbankPark, 18 December, 10-11.30

Last Wednesday Gardening of the year at the park this week (it’s unlikely that we’ll have a gardening session on Christmas day). The forecast is cold and fair – it could be right – and there’s always plenty to do.  So please come along if you can – it’s much more fun than Christmas shopping!


Wednesday Gardening @StarbankPark, 10-11.30 on 11 December

There will be gardening on Wednesday, 10-11.30, before the Christmas lunch (1pm in the bothy).  There’s always plenty to do and enjoy at the park.  Forecast is dry, cool and breezy so it will be fine in the shelter of the park.  Please come along if you can.

Janet held four wreath-making sessions in the park over the weekend.  They were a huge amount of work and an enormous success.  Many thanks to Janet and her helpers and well done! Again!!

There’s gardening on Wednesday, 10-11.30  There’s always plenty to get on with in the winter and the forecast is for a bright and breezy morning, with no frost (although there was certainly no shortage of frost yesterday, when these were taken!).


Gardening and Lego @StarbankPark on Saturday 30 November, 10-11.30

Park volunteers, come and play Lego on Saturday 30th November, 10-11:30, in the Bothy. It’s a fun way to enjoy the park. Ideal for children from 5 to 105! Lego is not just for children but helps with problem solving and dexterity.  Lego supplied but bring your own too.  There will be drinks too! And, if you don’t fancy the Lego, there’s always plenty to do in the garden with special elevenses!

I was a bit surprised yesterday morning by the very active wasp in the second picture – it seemed far too cold for it to be about.
