March 2012 ....

A busy month

Students from Northampton College helped improve Eastfield Park on no fewer that nine occasions during the month. March also saw the FoEP's annual community 'spring-clean' of the park and the first results from our public consultation were summarised and presented to NBC.

Following a power-point presentation on the work of the FoEP, three groups of students carried out improvements to the park. Two groups worked one hour a week for four weeks on Mondays and Thursdays clearing litter from the Booth Lane end of the park, trimming bushes alongside the 'ramp' into the park at the Booth Lane entrance and planting wild flowers near the entrance. The third group spent around two hours in the park one Friday clearing the steps near the top pond and planting foxgloves between the pond and the open parkland.

The Friends of the Park wish to record their sincere thanks to all the students and staff who joined in these activities and also to the College for providing funds to purchase the wildflowers planted by the students. The intention is also to plant a tree near the Booth Lane entrance.

The community spring clean on 24th March focussed on collecting litter from the lake and the area around it. Fifteen bags of litter and other rubbish were removed.

Full reports of the student work and the 'spring clean' will eventually be available to download from this site and more photographs will be posted.

Meanwhile our consultation continues. Only 20 questionnaires were completed in time to be included in our preliminary analysis discussed at our March meeting and forwarded to the Borough Council. However, the consultation remains open and we urge you to take part if you have not already done so.
