More Volunteer Momentum

The parks WW1 memorial garden had another push by the Barton ToCH group in November. Its really great to have assistance from those who are passionate and dedicated to making a difference in the local area. The family based team led by ToCH youngest leader, Martin Bavin have shown a tremendous effort and dedication to getting the job done. On this visit the team completed a huge clearance of waste that had built up over the years and created the full circle of the meandering path which circumnavigates the garden. This exciting moment now allows people to see the garden and the local park from many new angles. Local volunteer Nick, also came out on the weekend to give a boost to the group. He is a keen volunteer who helps out most weeks in Boultham Park and he was happy to lend his hand on this day. If you would like to be involved or have any feedback about this beautiful space please get in touch with neville.coupland@linkage.org.uk.  07834 335 669

Paving the Memorial Way by Toc H

Toc H is an international charity and membership movement that emerged from a soldiers’ club in Poperinge, Belgium during World War I. It seems to be auspicious as the group from Barton, Humberside came to Boultham Park on Saturday to revamp the Memorial Garden which was started in 2014 for the 100 years memorial of WW1. The area has had some success in becoming a new space for people and as we said in our previous news we have a new design to take it to the next level.

Members led by local family team Martin gave us an outstanding boost in opening up the new pathways and allowing new access to the area. This involved removing some of the existing paths and re-laying the edgings. A tree  planting and stump removal really got the group heated up. The team previously helped out with painting in the park and they showed their commitment to the park with focused effort once again.

It was lovely to see a group of families and friends (including Annie the dog) happily working and socialising in the garden. We were also treated to a visit from John Pye, the Boultham Park Advisory Group Chair and his granddaughter, who were both impressed by the energy and action happening.(Photo credit and rights to John Pye)

Please feel free to pop by and have a look at whats changing and look out for further news of the features coming. If you would like to lend a hand or offer any donations for planting, that would be greatly appreciated.




Be a part of the Memorial Garden !

Volunteer Lindsay Johnson has created a fantastic new vision for the enhancement of the WW1 memorial garden space which was initially created in 2014 by local restoration volunteers and the Lincolnshire Co-op. The space has incredible potential to become a hub of enrichment and community enjoyment. Plans include exciting features such as insect hotels, story tellers place and new planting. Project Assistant, Neville Coupland will be meeting at the garden every Thursday afternoon from 1pm to help regenerate the social spirit of being involved in local areas and giving you the opportunity to develop the memorial for future generations. If you see yourself here to socialise with other people, have some fun or roll up your sleeves and get involved. Lets make our garden great. Contact 07834 335 669,  Neville.coupland@linkage.org.uk

The garden is directly opposite St Helens Church and Hall Drive, there is easy access via the cycle paths as well as a car park less than a 1 minute walk away.
