Our Projects

 

 

Fruity Corner – Our current project is to turn corner of the park from a bare and unloved siding into a beautiful growing space with fruit trees, bushes and edible plants and herbs. If you’d like to work on this with us, get in touch!

 

 

 

Butterfly Border – This project saw a large barren slope transformed into a colourful and biodiverse border.

 

 

 

Art under the bridge – This well loved mural has transformed the space under the road bridge that was previously gloomy and covered in graffiti.

 

 

Community bird table & bench – Two totally unique sculptural pieces made from train wheel setts were installed into the park.

 

 

Figgy Kids – Our youngest volunteers attend a session once a month to take on small gardening and conservation tasks, litter picking and other nature themed activities.

 

 

 

 

Bug Hotel and Wildlife Bank – We ‘upcycled’ five supermarket trolleys to build our large Bug Hotel.

 

 

 

Living Willow Structures – A willow tunnel and several small structures were planted early in 2016 and we added to this well-used natural play area again in early 2017.

 

 

 

Figgy Do – We held our first community event this year to help raise the profile of our group and encourage more folk to become volunteers. We made a giant spiders web between two trees, served tea and cake and had circus, parkour and yarn workshops for children. There was face painting, a photographic exhibition and we were joined by some local musicians. A new mural was also installed to cover up the graffiti on one side of the substation.
