The Friends of Trentham Park held two action days this summer and were joined by residents and their children in efforts to keep the park looking colourful and loved.
The days centred around clearing out a previously fly-tipped binyard, which the friends hope will be used by residents for their bins as well as a possible raised bed. We are grateful to Groundwork who have now also levelled the floor. The back wall was painted in anticipation of some street art (yet to come). Children were asked to draw images of what they would like to see on this wall so watch this space …
Catherine Peacock from Kidz Klub Leeds and play streets also brought activities for the children and despite the rain lots of fun was had.
A second day centred around painting insects that will adorn the newly built raised beds as well as sporting activities led by Let’s Do More and Get Set Local.
