Painting Play Equipment
We are sorry we had to postpone the painting of the Ladybridge Park play equipment which was planned for Monday 13th May. We will let you know as soon as another date is given to us. Hopefully this won’t be too long – and the weather might be warmer (and drier) as well !
All are welcome to join us. We will supply the paint and brushes. You will need to wear suitable clothing!
Don’t Forget the Tree Trail
Following the guided tour of the trail on Saturday, 30th March, our Tree Trail is now going to remain live as long as you want it too. Maps and leaflets are available from the Drovers Return. Don’t forget to install a QR Code reading app onto your mobile phone.
You can read the Tree Health & Safety Report on which the Tree Trail is based (and all the other surveys and reports from the last year) via the links in ‘Our Lottery Year’.
