The bridges are now all done and the paths to them completed and now we come to a grinding halt until new work gets underway. The next thing is the Cafe and play area and the cleaning of the lake and the paths on the south side so people can at least walk around part of the lake. No dates are given yet for any of the work to start

There had been problems last week when the crane refused to lift as the wind was to high but with today being a nice day all went well

Unfortunately, there has been some delays through the weather causing concerns with this installation which remains underway.As you now it was hoped to complete the installation around Easter so we are about 1 week behind.
The wall on the lake is nearly finished and the island near the golf coarse is ready for planting any time now But as you can see there are some good floral displays at the park with spring bedding now in full bloom
