The Adventure Playground received a serious dose of TLC from a volunteer work group from Lloyds Bank. Katie Walsh, the manager of the playground, had a long list of tasks for the group of 30 plus volunteers from Lloyds branches in London and far beyond. The very able volunteers painted amphitheatre seats, built a mud kitchen and sorted the container storeroom where playground tools and equipment is stored.
But the most visible transformation was on the gardening front where paths were cleared and a sea of nettles plucked from next to the big swing. Jo Murray, from the FoBP gardening team, supervised the pruning of overgrown shrubs on the site. Invasive buddleia was cleared from the playground wall. Cllr Rowena Champion lent a hand in this super tidy. The beloved dragon artwork appeared again after a wall of neglected shrubs was tamed. The totem pole is now visible too. The children are thrilled and will paint their newly emerged dragon friend. Job done!
