The Friends Of Sheldon Country Park really had a very busy weekend. On Saturday, the committee, and volunteers from the local community joined them in the second Great British Spring Clean of our local park. It is always very pleasing when local volunteers turn up to lend a hand. This time they concentrated on the Tallington Road entrance to Sheldon Country Park.
On a bright but cool saturday morning Debbie and Sue are joined by a local volunteer as the prepare to set off and do some litter picking.
My goodness me, you can see how difficult it is to get into the branches of the trees to pick up all that rubbish. However, another one of our volunteers is hard at it with a smile.
It’s great to see a young volunteer with her Mom doing their bit in making Sheldon Country Park a cleaner and greener place for the thousands of visitors.
Not only were the volunteers getting stuck in, the committee of the Friends Group were also hard at it. Photos left to right, shows Grant lugging a large piece of metal, Barrie and Val are clearing the bushes by the bank that leads to the airport, and Arthur the Chairman and one our new members Lee, are deep in the coppice litter picking.

The Chairman of the Friends Of Sheldon Country Park would like to thank everyone for their fantastic work on Saturday in the Great British Spring Clean.
On Sunday morning the committee were once again up early to get their stals ready for the early Friends Of Sheldon Country Park Easter event. There was a Balls In Jar, Straws In The Sand, Easter Eggs Raffle, Easter Egg Hunt, and last but not least, Arts & Craft for the kids in the school room.
The Easter event raised over £300 which will go into The Friends Of Sheldon Country Park funds to help improve the amenities at the farm the the local and wider community. Arthur Tamlyn, the Chairman of the group would like to thank everyone who came along and support his event, also he would like to thank all of the committee for their efforts in the two events over this very busy weekend.
