Volunteers Create New Features at East Town Park

Tuesday, 20th June 2006.

Volunteers who dedicate hours of their time to improving our prized open spaces have completed an attractive new project in Haverhill.

The group, who meet every Monday at East Town Park, spent the winter clearing scrub before beginning work on a new sunken path. The route, which stretches from Millennium Meadow to Railway Walk, was created using sustainable bark chippings and other locally sourced materials. Rustic post and rail fencing and three sets of steps with handrails were also installed.

Woodland flowers, such as foxgloves, primroses and red campion, have also recently been planted underneath some of the park’s mature conifers to add colour and interest.

Councillor Paul Farmer, Portfolio Holder for the Arts and Culture, said:

“The volunteers have shown an admirable dedication to East Town Park for many years, and this latest project once again illustrates both their hard work and enthusiasm. Their efforts to improve the natural environment should be congratulated and will no doubt be appreciated by the park’s many visitors over the summer months.”
