Park is looking good!  Mike Nicholson, a local author and writing consultant, dropped in this morning as part of the preparation for tomorrow’s story telling with Victoria Primary.

Poster Art from Victoria Primary P2 for our nature trail

Here’s just a little of the brilliant artwork produced by P2 for our Hans Christian Anderson information boards.  Can you spot the pea?  The Snow Queen looks very scary with her face blue with cold!  Many thanks to all involved!

We’ve raised over 70% of what we need for the Nature Trail. Please help us to raise the rest by donating through MyParkScotland at http://www.mypark.scot/projects/childrens-nature-trail/. Did you know you also can donate by texting FOSP50 £5 to 70070?

Good Nature Trail Progress

The marsh area is now prepared for “The Ugly Duckling”, we’ve started planting and we have made progress on the path with wood chips between the stepping stones!

Progress with the Nature Trail

A good turn out again on a cold sunny morning.  Preparations are well in hand for the first story area in the children’s nature trail.  This morning we cleared and replanted shrubs and bulbs before dug out the area for the mini-marsh ready for the “Ugly Duckling”.
