New Benches & Noticeboard

Our latest additions to the park from the Awards for All grant are now in place! The noticeboard near the Inkerman Cottages entrance and six new seats and benches. Unfortunately the noticeboard has some damage so the front panel will be replaced shortly. This is why it still has the protective wrapping.
All the old wooden benches have been removed except for the one near the Manor Road entrance.

This completes our Awards for All project putting in 6 new trees along the path, 6000 flower bulbs, new benches and notice board.
