News from Friends of The Arno & Oxton Fields

The Friends of The Arno and Oxton Fields help maintain parks in Oxton and have many great projects underway and planned for the future.

With this aim a number of members and friends meet up most Monday mornings in The Arno Rose Garden to weed, plant or generally tidy the fabulous Long Herbaceous Border and a number of the other beds, this an on going task and any new volunteers would be most welcome.

Because there are so many other tasks and projects, we started our 1st Saturday of the month volunteer day, so that we can also cover some of our other projects, such as tending to the new wildflower meadow we have planted on The Oxton Fields, or the Bog planting area we have planned, maybe helping prepare the ground for the poppy and cornflower meadow we plan.

We also have a number of historical projects like clearing and restoring old pathways or the old quarry steps, tree and bulb planting events to improve the appearance of our parks for all who visit them.

Anyone who is interested or able to join our team will be most welcome even if is just to join us for coffee and biscuits and discuss our plans.
