Restoring the George Forrest bed

A few of us were down at the George Forrest Bed on Friday for our weekly gardening session. We hope you can see from the photos that we’re making progress. The piles of weeds on one side of the path around the bed will be picked up by the Council.

We plan to work on the bed every Friday morning, weather permitting, until we have cleared the bed of weeds. Afterwards we want to think about what we can do to open up the bed to park users.

Can you help us?

We are currently seeking individuals to become actively involved with the Friends of Maxwell Park as volunteers and trustees. A number of of our trustees are due to step down from their roles this year and unfortunately we have no new members to take their place. Without new trustees then the future looks bleak for further projects by the Friends of Maxwell Park or indeed for the group to continue as a registered charity. 
 
If you would like to get involved and have some spare time to help the group with future projects in our beautiful park then please get in touch with us via friendsofmaxwellpark@gmail.com, Twitter @GlasMaxwellPark or Facebook www.facebook.com/friendsofmaxwellpark. Alternatively, if you know anyone who would be interested in getting involved then please direct them to our aforementioned links.
 
We are currently looking at planting a small orchard within Maxwell Park in conjunction with pupils from Hutcheson’s Grammar. This would be an excellent opportunity for us to plant several fruit trees in the Park near the Heritage notice board and the existing ornamental cherry tree. We hope that this may encourage some pupils to become actively involved in caring for our beautiful park.

Want To Get Involved?

We are currently seeking individuals to become actively involved with the Friends of Maxwell Park as trustees. A number of of our trustees are due to step down from their roles at the end of the year. If you would like to get involved and have some spare time to help the group with future projects in our beautiful park then please get in touch. Alternatively, if you know anyone who may be interested in getting involved then please direct them to this page. Many thanks, FoMP.

Ready Steady Grow

27th May 2012

Ready Steady Grow - Sunday 27th MayOnce again we will be taking part in the Southside Ready Steady Grow event that is happening this weekend. We will be launching the community plant nursery that we have been working hard to set up over the past few months. We’ll also have tea, lots of cake and face painting for the little ones (and not-so-little ones if you fancy it).

This year we are really happy to have the RSPB in attendance to provide some insight into the wide variety of birdlife that inhabit our beautiful park. Come along, have a walk in the sunshine (we hope), grab a cuppa and maybe discover something about Maxwell Park that you didn’t know before.
