Work Continues!

The hazel denPlayscape and the SSYI took the opportunity over the Easter break to do some remedial work in the copse. Thanks to Keira, Marlon and Zac there is a new (sturdier!) willow and hazel hurdle. If you take any budding den builders down to the copse please encourage them to use sticks that are lying on the ground and leave the weaving intact, thank you!

Also thanks to the Beavers the rec has a new hedge planted in front of the fence by the flag-pole. We used the remaining funds from the Co-Op grant to purchase the saplings which are a mixture of hazel, blackthorn, hawthorn, dogwood and dog rose – give them a few years and they’ll look great as well as being a perfect wildlife habitat.

And finally, fundraising continues, not least with the opening of the Fun Run registration! Do sign-up for this brilliant local event, a 5km on closed roads through the beautiful Shelford Villages with all proceeds going to Great Shelford Playscape. Children, adults, runners, walkers, all welcome, why not put a team together and get yourselves sponsored?
