More signs of spring as lots of robins about the trees being blown over have brought more birds to the park as the wood contains insects etc and the birds have moved in to cleanup.
Some of the trees and Bushes are starting to flower as spring gets underway
The Queens Park ANTs (Actions Not Talk) volunteers met last weekend to continue the winter clear-up and greet new members.
The event was billed as a “Drop-In” session where potential new volunteers could see what goes on and ask questions about the on-going projects around the park, and numbers were boosted by members of the Sydney Arms Slimming World Group.
Sheila Cotton, SW group leader, said: ‘Getting involved with the ANTs was perfect as part of our Body Magic programme. Members are encouraged to be more active at home and in the community, so helping out at Queens Park was great exercise and everyone benefits.’
The ANTs are an informal group that meet monthly and new volunteers are welcome to spend just an hour, or as long as they can spare. The work is light and easy-going, but a great fun way to burn off a few post-Christmas pounds. Gloves, hi-vis jackets and basic tools are supplied.
