Thanks to all the fund-raising efforts of the Friends group over the summer, and
the generosity of those who have offered to sponsor a rose bush at £10 a go, we
have raised enough money to buy 24 roses, to fill the beds opposite the Gents
and Ladies toilets, either side of the cafe.
In discussion with the park gardeners, we are proposing Golden Celebration and Jubilee Celebration, which can be seen on the David Austin Roses website. They are an appropriate size and spread, and combine robustness with fragrance.
Come along to the next FoDRP meeting on 1 November to hear more about the plans. Jannet
