As a parkrun we are hugely fortunate to have the beautiful and wonderfully varied surroundings of Dunorlan Park as the setting - week by week - for our event. Have you ever thought that you'd like to show your appreciation of those who work so hard to protect and maintain the park? If so, here's one way in which you could make a very practical contribution and "give something back".
Kasia, Parks Technical Officer at TWBC, writes:
"Monday Volunteers meet at Dunorlan Park nearly every Monday near the café at 9.30am. We undertake various gardening and conservation tasks in the park. In winter it would be coppicing vegetation around the lake, removal of invasive laurel, some planting and pruning, weaving of playground willow tunnel and feeding of the waterfowl. In spring and summer we help with the upkeep of the beds – weeding, tidying up. We finish work at 12.30pm, with a tea/coffee and biscuits break at 11am. TWBC provide tools, gloves, volunteers t-shirts and fleece jackets. Sturdy boots are required."

We aim to post information periodically on the work of the Monday Volunteers. In the meantime, here's some pics of the volunteers in action.
