GLMP Practical volunteering task - vegetation clearance around ponds (2)
This event is in the past. This page is for information purposes only.
Dear Friends of Great Linford Manor Park,
Thanks to those who were able to help clear the vegetation around the ponds on 16th January. It was a wonderful task and great to see the ponds beginning to open up again. I would therefore like to continue this activity with 10 volunteers - please read below for more information
Date: Friday 15th February
Time: 1 - 3:30pm
Meet: Milton Keynes Arts Centre
As you may know, the HLF project is proposing to improve visability to the pond gardens by using selective tree removals and vegetation clearance around the ponds in 2020 as part of the capital works [as well as the structural restoration]. In preperation for this, we would love to show visitors to the park what this improvement could look like by us removing select vegetation [weeds / brambles] around the ponds and opening up these views in 2019. This will not involve any tree removals at this stage.
So please come along, bring suitable footwear and any gloves or shears if you have them [though there are spare gloves and shears if needed] and help us clear up and better maintain this area of the park.
