The volunteer team from East Coast Train Depot supported by FoFP committee members got stuck into the undergrowth for a couple of hours to clear lots of unsightly litter from the wilderness area last weekend.
What a huge difference this task has made and so timely as Spring growth will soon gain momentum.
Fantastic job done by all involved.
We are very excited to have been awarded the Neighbourhood Partnership Fund for our Art Under the Bridge project. We will be producing a leaflet to go out to the three local primary schools after Easter to encourage pupils to make an art work of what they would like to see “Under the Bridge’ … there will be ‘pop up’ Art Exhibitions of pupils work in the local area during May.
Heres a great website to checkout for kids interested in wildlife http://www.wildlifewatch.org.uk
The lovely folk at the Woodland Trust are sending us 420 sapling trees … delivery due in early March. There will be Hazel, Blackthorn, Crab Apple, Dog Rose, Elder, Hawthorn, Rowan, Silver Birch, Common Oak, Downy Birch and Holly. We will be planting the majority on the slope that runs up to Duddingston Primary School where so many mature trees have sadly been lost in recent years.
If you would like to volunteer in practical projects such as tree planting then please email email@example.com
Figgate Friends are keen to see a community bird table in the Park to help support our smaller birds throughout the year but especially through the winter months. We have recently received a generous donation of bird seed and will be making some seed cake to hang in the area where we would like to have the bird table.
Hello everyone who knows, uses and loves the Figgate Park …. watch this space as we hope to have our website developed quite soon ……. in the meantime please keep updated by checking in with us on https://www.facebook.com/Figgate
