Coronavirus / covid-19 update

Please note that events / activities / volunteering groups are being cancelled from Monday 23rd March (some sooner), until further notice. We are sorry to have to take this step but in light of the most recent government advice it is the right thing to do, to delay the spread of the disease and protect those people in the ‘vulnerable’ categories.

We look forward to reinstating our activities, and to starting the exciting programme of events through the lake restoration project later in the year.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Lake Restoration Project – tree works – drop in session 4th February in the Cafe

Tree removals and replanting will take place in the park from 10th February. These works are necessary for the success of the lake restoration project. Trees are being removed where they are breaking through lake bank edges, where the tree is not a healthy specimen, and / or in order to let more light in to wooded areas.

We will replant at least as many trees as we remove.

Our plans are supported by Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and are in accordance with the recommendations from the most recent Ecology Survey. The are part of our overall plans to improve biodiversity in and around the lake through this NLHF / City Council funded project.

If you’d like to know more about the tree works, we’re having a ‘drop in’ session in Boultham Park Café, Tuesday 4th February, 2-4pm.

If that time doesn’t suit you, get in touch with us and we’ll be happy to arrange a chat at your convenience.
