Spring

The friends meeting was held last week and the mins are here The interesting bits are they now have money to pay to restore thing that have been restored. They are also contemplating a web site which would evolve spending money raised for the park on it instead of providing nesting for wildlife or other useful things. Considering my two sites  have been running for over 5 years with 1,000 of photo and weekly reports wit hover a million hits whats the point of wasting money on another one? I had an offer from the scouts to help the ANTS and I passed this on to them over a week ago and they have not responded so I assume they dont want help?

With the few nice days we have had spring has burst into life the rabbits are out down Coronation walk. The swans are trying to nest on the island but have nothing to make a nest from. The wildlife group brought hay but no one would put it on the island for us

Vandals strike again

DSCF7956

This week the Guld war memorial has returned after it had been vandalised and its better than ever. Its gone back in the same spot which is out of site so people wont see it and vandals can wreck it without being seen lets hope they leave it alone this time and remember those that gave their lives

DSCF7965

They have started doing one of the path near the lodge this week it will only have a tempory top on it so it can be finished when other paths are done so they will all be the same colour
