There is a definite whiff of spring in the air! Many of our young trees are showing signs of blossom and planning for our open day on Sunday April 26th is well underway.
We know that there is a risk we might have to postpone due to the Covid-19 virus, but we are going ahead with planning. It is after all, an open air event, and we reckon that everyone will be ready to come and have some fun in the fresh air by then!
So, what have we been doing? Our butterfly expert has done some planting on the mound and we have added lots of bee loving plants to the nectar garden.
We remain hopeful that the Elms Close entrance and pathway will be completed by the open day – who would have thought that a few yards of tarmac would prove so difficult to complete?
The dipping deck gate is now constructed and sitting in a garage somewhere in Duxford – it will be in place soon!
We have a great line up for the open day, with music, food, drink and games. The new community centre car park will be available and hopefully the weather will be kind.
We are still hoping to have a junior skate ramp, shelter and graffiti wall on site before yet another year has passed – we need your support to get these facilities in place!
