BETTY EASTWOOD PARK: I received this message from the Friends of Betty Eastwood Park. ‘We would like to reassure people that the friends of Betty Eastwood Park are not destroying the wildlife habitats, far from it we are creating more, while at the same time ensuring the park is a more hospitable place for families to enjoy a bit of the countryside on their doorstep. A lot of the pruning we are doing is to enable the more established trees and shrubs to survive, at the moment trees and shrubs are fighting for what little soil there is in the park. We are also planting bulbs including Bluebells, Snowdrops and Daffodils, by next spring we hope to introduce some more flowering shrubs, all this to encourage insects and birds. There is a plan for more bird & owl boxes and a family picnic area. If anyone is interested by what we are trying to achieve and would like to join us, and it’s free to join, then please contact us on 01924 251544 or come down to the park on Wednesday or Sunday afternoon 2pm when you will catch us working in the park’
