Grosvenor & Hilbert Park News

January 2022 update
Date Published: Sun 2nd Jan

Happy New Year everyone.

2022 is Jubilee Year, and we will be planting a tree in the park as part of The Queen's Green Canopy (www.queensgreencanopy.org). Watch out for information on date of planting, hopefully you can join us.

We won't be holding a Big Garden Birdwatch in the park this year, but please hold one in your garden and submit the results to the RSPB (www.rspb.org.uk/get-involved/activities/birdwatch) over the weekend of 28th - 30th January.

The 2022 Winter Lantern Parade is set to go ahead on Saturday 5th February. The parade will start in the town centre, walk along Camden Road, and finish in the park. There are various workshops and also a request for volunteers on the day, please see their Facebook page for more information (www.facebook.com/WinterLanternParade). This is a great community event for our local area!

November 2021 update

We are really pleased that the park won several awards this summer - see this news article:

We have, alongside Kent High Weald Partnership and RTW In Bloom, replanted the bowls green beds, and we'll be replanting the baskets on the railings.

We are reminded of the importance of green spaces by "Fields in Trust" - it's worth having a look at their website.

With that in mind, we hear the Friends of Calverley Grounds are looking for a new Chairperson, if anyone is interested.

We will be looking towards holding more events in 2022, all being well.
