Andy O’Neill had carved three more play features at Barnard Park. Along with Brissles the Hedgehog, two ladybirds and a tortoise are giving to the children of our area a chance to play and come in touch with natural wood play features at Barnard Park.
The three new play features are going to reveal their names which they have been chosen from school children at the 24th May.
If you haven’t yet passed from Barnard Park come and see them they are pieces of art.
The same day children are going to plant with flowers a 15m crown shape opposite the shops at Crow Lane. Play Rangers, Play Bus, a story teller and a few more stalls will be there to entertain the children and everyone of our Community.

The Henbury & Brentry Transition Group acquired 1000 bulbs through the good offices of the Neighbourhood Partnership and in conjunction with Henbury Conservation Society mustered around 20 adults and children to plant them on the banks around the Ford on Henbury Road adjacent to the Salutation.
Work started at 11:00 and by 13:30 all 1000 bulbs had been planted thanks to the hard work of all present.
It remains to be seen what shows this year but we should have a really fine flowering next year.
Here is a link to a handful of ‘action’ photos I took.
