We recently received 80 whip sized tree saplings  donated by the Woodland trust. They came with rather flimsy protection that did not stand up to the high winds and nibbling deer. So we spent £333 (from FoDP reserve funds) on fencing posts and strong wire netting. This project will be finished by Sunday.

The LBH parks department also planted more mature saplings along the gravel track leading to the manor house site. This was paid for by FODP (£943) and is part of our annual capital project.  (The council give FODP £1000 per year in recognition of us being the official friends group of the Manor).

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

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
