Duke’s River

Kingcups are go! The river improvements have shown some early results. The new river shelf  (mainly Riverside Walk side) was pre-planted with river–edge plants and we have seen some beautiful yellow Kingcups (Marsh Marigolds).

What’s happening in your garden?

Everything is growing like mad, including the weeds! A bit of time spent weeding now is well worth it. Hoe off annual weeds before they set seed and leave them on the ground or put them in the compost bin.

It is safe to plant out summer bedding, too, at last – but though it’s been warm watch out for late frosts.

Closure of WERFA park entrances

The annual closure of the WERFA park entrances will be on Good Friday 30th March. We do this once a year to signify the park is private property and is not a public right of way. The tape barriers can easily be slipped off at one end and returned after passing through.

Park Pavilion car park improvements

Work is nearly complete on the perimeter posts to prevent unauthorised vehicle access. This has needed a lot of work and a significant investment for the future security of the Park.

As part of this the team has worked to provide extra parking spaces for Pavilion visitors who need them, especially those making deliveries or who can’t walk far. The new spaces are muddy and should if possible be avoided for now. There will be surfacing work which should improve things. As ever we all need to be observant about use of the spaces. A reminder that they are not for residents’ general use and vehicles are not allowed to park there overnight.

WERFA Newsletter – Is this the End?

For just over a year I have been producing the paper version WERFA Newsletter, but unfortunately, due to various commitments this is something I am no longer able to continue to do.  If there are no volunteers to take this on, we will have to end the production of the Newsletter.

I would like to ask if anyone would like to help me with the paper version of the newsletter production – If so, please contact me via email at: werfa@hotmail.co.uk

Father Christmas

Father Christmas will be delivering on the Woodlands Estate as usual on Christmas Eve. As usual we are asking parents to provide a Small present themselves and there will also be a small charge of £2 per present delivered to help Father Christmas maintain his sleigh. The presents should be wrapped and clearly marked with the child’s name and address, and delivered to 69 Woodland Gardens with the fee by 23rd December. Email Shelagh at werfa@hotmail.co.uk for details.
