There have been some great rangers events provided for the children and their families to enjoy, thanks to the Rangers and to all that attended the events.
Saturday 5th February 2011 10.00am - 12.00pm , children came along and made nesting boxes to provide homes for birds arriving in the spring, the event was held on the car park under a gazebo because the weather was very wet, but despite this people attended and some lovely boxes were made. There was a £3 charge for each box made to cover the material costs that the rangers provided.
Easter Egg Hunt
Tuesday 12th April 2011 2.00pm - 3.30pm
Children brought along a hard boiled egg to decorate and then they had to hunt out eggs around the park and find answers to a quiz. This event was very popular and it was a beautiful day too- In total 89 children came along to decorate an egg and the park at its busiest saw an astounding number of users 212 !!
This really shows how the park is continuing to bring people back there as it improves- there was a lovely sense of community and everyone had a lovely time -the Rangers bless them looked shattered when they had finished their shift with us - wee done to all !!
Again check out the events calendar as there may be another rangers event in the summer- we will keep the website updated re this .
