A number of members have adopted trees near their homes and are planting flowering plants in the soil around them to improve the visual environment and discourage dog fouling and litter.
The tree above was planted in 2007 in memory of Brian Scott (1934-2005) who lived at 94 Springfield Road for many years.
Please participate if you can, the more trees we can enhance the better.
Click here for more photos of plantings and here for a poster to download, print and display on your adopted tree.
A local group has a Freecycle corner at the Florence Road Saturday Market. If you have any useful items you no longer need and would like to find a new home please take them along, you may well find something there that you didn’t know you needed.
If anything you bring is not taken you will need to take it home at the end of the market, a label with a name and contact number on larger items would be useful.
The parkrun is coming to Preston Park.
