Grosvenor & Hilbert Park News

Here are the posts for February 2014
The Pallet Bridge
Author: Carolyn T Gray, Date Published: Wed 26th Feb 2014

Brilliant work today from Kent High Weald Partnership and volunteers to, clear muddy soil off paths, build bridge & extension (hopefully only needed for a short while), also a team were bramble clearing in the woods. I'm sure everyone passes on a thanks to them, and we hope this bridge lasts until the proper, new, heritage lottery funded one, arrives!

Britian in Bloom
Date Published: Sun 2nd Feb 2014

The Friends of Grosvenor and Hilbert Park have joined the RHS It's Your Neighbourhood (IYN) scheme, an opportunity for smaller, volunteer-led community groups to get involved with Britain in Bloom. Groups are not judged, but visited by 'in Bloom' expert assessors, who give feedback and encouragement and issue a certificate based on how well the IYN aims are met.

Our scheme is to brighten up the Bowls Pavilion area and FoGH will provide the basic equipment (pots, planters, compost, seeds and plants). The community involvement starts at the Easter Eggstravaganza on 20th April, with children planting sunflowers seeds in pots, to be planted in the Park near the Bowls Pavilion when they are larger.

At Plant and Play on Saturday 24th May, we invite the community to plant window box planters for the railings around the Bowling Green, as well as other types of planter.

Children's Activities are included!
