Also this time we were able to borrow a chipper so we could cut back most of the laurel bushes and shred them. This won't actually kill the laurel. But we can't remove the roots as they are the only things holding the bank together at the moment. It has made the area much more open and so we are hoping that park users will feel safer in this part of the park.
The top of two of our benches in the play area have been missing for months. They were replaced just the week before this event. Don't they look lovely!
October 2004 Litter Pick
The torrential rain didn't manage to dampen our spirits. One of the kids said "It's the best thing we've done all weekend". We even had time for a little hide and seek!
The wall in the background is owned by the Oakdale Centre and was, until the day before covered in graffiti. But after a nudge in the right direction it has been cleaned up.
Then on the 7th of October we cut back some laurel to increase visibility.
This is the boundary wall with Raddlebarn Primary School. On the 15th of October and 4th November we removed some graffiti and multi-layer gloss paint using environmentally friendly graffiti, paint & varnish removal products. We just sprayed or brushed it on left it for a while then removed it with a sponge, wire brush and water.
