Thank You Lindsay – (and all our other volunteers)

There’s lots to celebrate in Boultham Park, and we can’t wait until everyone can get up close to explore all that the lake restoration project is delivering. We’ve had so many positive comments about the interpretation panels / public art which was recently installed, and we wanted to take the opportunity to acknowledge Lindsay Johnson.

As well as working for the project team, Lindsay also volunteers for the project, and as a volunteer she wrote the interpretation strategy and designed the interpretation panels and art sculptures that you can see now on the paths surrounding the lake. From the supporting strategy behind the themes and aims, to the materials used, the designs of the sculpture panels, the information on the lecterns and the images on those panels, to where they are sited and which way they face – Lindsay has driven the creation of the wonderful installations we can all now enjoy. This has involved huge skill, patience and many, many hours of hard work and grit. We are truly grateful.

Volunteering can take many forms. Our interpretation panels – one of which is on the theme of volunteering and ‘doing our bit’ – will stand as testament to that for generations to come.

Thank you to Lindsay, and thank you to all of our volunteers in Boultham Park and across the city. We salute you.

National Volunteer Week – thank you to all our volunteers

As it’s National Volunteers week, we would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to our volunteers for all their hard work, enthusiasm and dedicatioon to Boultham Park and our city’s green spaces!!!
Volunteers have yet again made a huge impact over this past year, working within Boultham Park, Hartsholme Country Park, Birchwood Nature Park, Swanholme Lakes Local Nature Reserve and the South and West Commons.
Although all works and projects are currently on hold due to the Covid 19 virus, our volunteers are ready and eagerly waitng (with shovels and saws in hand!) to return and continue the good work where they left off.
Volunteering can bring huge benefits in terms of physical and mental health and this is something we will be promoting in our recruitment campaign when we are able to fully return to our green space sites. And there will be lots of opportunities to volunteer as part of the lake restoration project!
Once again, thank you to all our volunteers, past and present!
For further information on volunteering with us, please contact Alistair Brookes, Volunteer Coordinator

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.

First of the new trees in Boultham Park

Councillor Bob Bushell planted a tree on 10th February to mark the start of the Boultham Park  Lake Restoration project, and to celebrate the Council’s commitment to the Woodland Trust Tree & Woodland Charter.

Representatives of Woodland Trust, Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and Boultham Park Advisory Group were there to celebrate, alongside local residents, councillors and council officers.

The event launched the lake restoration project which has now started with tree removals and tree planting during February. If you’d like to join volunteers planting trees in Boultham Park please contact Al, our Volunteer Coordinator (details on the volunteering page).
