ACTIVITY sessions in Winsford’s Town Park have resumed for 2023.

The sessions continue through until autumn, perfect for getting your hands dirty and trying out some gardening, or even just popping along for a chat.

The first session back was on Wednesday, March 8, and these will now continue weekly.

A spokesperson for Friends of Winsford Town Park said: “Sessions are held from 10.30am until around 1.30pm, weather permitting.

“Come when you can, stay as long as you like, even if it's just for a chat.

“If you'd like to help, please come along and join in – no experience is necessary, and all equipment is provided (you'll need to wear gardening clothes, shoes, and gloves).

“We're likely to be spending some time on the park's two ponds, especially the top pond (Dingle Lane end) which is in danger of becoming overgrown with weeds – the weeds are to be cleared and some replanting of marginals may then follow.”

As well as the activity sessions, work is starting soon on the Prairie Zone beds - the central feature of Town Park's planted area.

Designed by Jo Fawcett in 2018, the scheme is influenced by the work of Dutch landscape designer Piet Oudolf, whose plant designs in public spaces help ‘connect and engage people with nature’.

A spokesperson added: “Some areas of the Prairie Zone need to be replanted, and the Friends have worked closely with Winsford Town Council to bring this about.

“Work will begin to machine-strip areas of weed, and then backfill with a mixture of topsoil and soil improver.

“These areas will be replanted in keeping with Jo's design in late March/early April.

“The cost for the groundwork and replanting is being met by the Friends.”

The Spring General Meeting for the Friends of Winsford Town Park is taking place on Tuesday, March 14 at 6pm at the library in High Street.

Everyone is welcome to attend the meeting, which will review recent work and look to the future.
