Winter tidy up in Kings Norton Park.

Tidy for Winter 

(and next meet)

Thanks to everyone who turned out to tidy up the shrub beds ... we extend a very warm welcome to our new active member, Uncle Albert who saw himself in one of our display photographs in Kings Norton Library and thought he should get involved.  The photograph is the one featuring our last park keeper.   
Having been weeded and turned over, the soil is now aerated and gullied to provide some drainage.  The beds are full of winter interest demonstrating why the original design was award winning.  

Well we ought say, three beds are, the fourth, the crescent shaped bed at the end, although supporting a beautiful slender silver birch is otherwise failing.   We hope to plant this up with plants and grasses that are very water tolerant at our next work out which is, as normal, the first Friday of the month, the next being the 7 December, usual time, 11.30 am.   We will also mulch.

Hope to see you on 7th if not before!

This fungi was found growing next to the car park.. any ideas what it sis?

Next Committee meeting has been moved from Sat 24 Nov to Sat 8 December at 11.30 am at Kings Norton Library.   There is farmers market on the Green and book fayre at St Nicolas place that day... please visit too.   

Please join us if you want to share a cuppa and plan your Park ideas.
