Notes from Southwick Country Park

by  Sarah Marsh

A new species has been spotted in the Country Park.

Dashing and darting around at great speed, bright green colouring with black markings. It is of course, our happy band of volunteers wearing their new hi-viz vests. The bright colour proves very useful when trying to locate them in the outer reaches of the Park and useful too, if members of the public want to seek us out. Seriously though, these vests will prove invaluable and bought with funds raised from car boot sales.

Another expenditure recently has been the entrance to the Park from the Allotments. A new metal kissing gate has been installed by contractors as this work was too much for the volunteers. However, we did clear the area of brambles and dug trenches in readiness for the work. This was all paid for by a grant from Tesco.

 Something new for us has been to utilize Dave’s lovely photographs to produce fridge magnets and notelets. We sold some at the bank holiday car-boot and they proved popular. We are looking at other outlets in the area and Trowbridge Tourist Information Centre has agreed to display some. We will be looking into other venues to be announced in the next article.
