30th April 2019

Members of the dig team took on a new role today by picking up brushes and painting the fencing around the car park. They will be continuing this over the next few weeks (Tuesday mornings) and by the time that they have finished it is hoped that the fencing will not have to be done again for more than a few years.              Don Tait

14th May 2019

Members of the FODP began work on clearing the pathway from the small car park to the circle of trees today. Over the years grass and other vegetation has encroached upon it, reducing it's width. It is hoped that in time the path will be clear and wide enough to allow people in wheel chairs or those who have to use walking aids access to more of the park than they can at the moment.                     Don Tait

3rd June 2019

Sadly the most recently installed metal notice board situated in the Settle Road car park was been vandalised. The clear view display door which houses the latest news sheets was broken. Tom Fradd from LBH Parks has taken the door away. Hopefully it can be repaired, if not, then replaced. If you know of someone or saw anyone acting suspiciously regarding this, do contact us.

The Save Gooshays Village Green group have recently posted this message.

FODP members and other volunteers collected eight tyres and six sacks of litter from north end of the park along with a further eight bags, including barbed wire and metal from the south & east of the park. It all makes a difference so thank you.

 The Tuesday working party have made a huge effort to prepare the Manor for the London in Bloom judges. They will soon be inspecting our nature reserve. Hopefully we will once again receive another Gold award.The working party have concentrated on the Settle Road entrance. This area badly needed an upgrade. The barrier fencing has been painted, bulbs and shrubs planted and cut back, plus over 90 tree saplings with protective supports have been dug in. Also the debris from the recently laid, 60 car spaced tarmac flooring, has been tided and removed. Unfortunately there has been much graffiti painted on trees and gates lately. This too has been covered over. Have you looked around our historic moat recently? If not, do look at the latest enamel information sign LBH have installed.
