A new year in the park

This blog has had a long winter hibernation, but now the Friends are emerging with new plans for 2013.

We’ll soon be posting information about this year’s photo competition, and about a new activity, yarnbombing, run with Sally Stone and Deborah New, two local craft-workers.

We’ll also be following the council’s budget discussions, with interest. With £20m to save over two years, cuts are going to be made in many different sectors, and parks are definitely vulnerable.  We’ve been reassured that the recent publicity about parks being left unlocked over-night won’t affect Rowntree Park, but we know that the council is proposing the Ranger service be merged with the dog wardens and street environment services, which will obviously affect the work that the Rangers do for Rowntree Park’s users.

If you want to keep up with what’s going on, then you can follow this blog (put your email address into where it says ‘Follow this blog by email’) and keep in touch using Facebook.
