New this season

Putting in the park

The council have arranged for putting to be available on one of the bowling greens at the park. For £1 (payable at the little orange kiosk), you get a putter, a golf ball and a score card, and the chance to get very frustrated when an ‘easy par 2’ turns into an eight-stroke saga. In the sunshine yesterday, the green was full of people trying their luck.

 

 

 

 

 

Also new this year, somewhere slightly more suitable for frogs to hang out. This one was spotted hopping towards our new pond, past a flourishing tansy plant – thanks for this seal of approval! The pond and the new planting seem to have survived their first flooding (last week) with no problem.
