We need your help for Phase 2 on the library car park project. We are aiming to clear grass and weeds from the corner area, and enclose the space with some post and rail panels that we have.

We would also like to create some raised beds with scaffolding planks or similar timber, transport some mulch and soil to the new beds and collect and lay woodchip.

Things we would like include enthusiastic volunteers, tools, hammers, nails, drills saws etc. shovels, wheel barrow, scaffolding planks and a bench or picnic seating.

If you are able to supply any of this or attend, we would be very grateful. We would also like to thank local developer Lightbox for helping us with this project.

If children are in attendance they must be closely supervised by parents or adult carers at all times.
