Sir,- We wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who joined us for the bulb planting last Sunday in Burley Park. Across the morning around 50 of you turned out to help plant 1,000 woodland bulbs and also some narcissi in the community orchard. We are so grateful for such enthusiastic volunteers, you made the entire plan possible.

We’re grateful too, to Love Leeds Parks for supporting us with a grant to help us buy the bulbs.

Hopefully we will all see the benefits of this project in the spring, only a few weeks away now!

Our next volunteer session will be on Sunday, 11 February at 10am – meeting by the gardens near the former Park Keeper’s Cottage.

Another date for your diary – We will be holding a Community Picnic Lunch on Sunday May 12. More details will follow nearer the time, but do keep the date free so you can join us and enjoy the blossom circle at its finest.

Our thanks again,

  • Friends of Burley Park Committee
