Another year has gone by and our open spaces are more beautiful and biodiverse thanks to those who generously give their time and effort to help, despite the challenges faced by Covid-19.
Recently, volunteers helped plant new shrubs at Whitecliff Recreation Ground in Poole (pictured), just one of many days spent working alongside the council and Parks Foundation staff, meaning more can be achieved for all to enjoy.
Across town, Friends of Druitt Gardens in Christchurch are a friendly group who meet twice a week and have recently constructed a small wildlife educational centre to increase visitor awareness and to foster the interest of local school children. They've also planted additional trees and have created a wildflower area. New volunteers are warmly welcomed, please email the Friends of Druitt Gardens to find out more. For general volunteering enquiries across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, please email our Development Officer Sarah.
A heartfelt THANK YOU to all those who've helped in all our parks and open spaces in the last year. Have a peaceful break and we look forward to seeing you all in the New Year for more volunteering opportunities!
