|The Friends of Brimsham Park and Lake and local councillors|
celebrate their grant - and their haul of rubbish!
The Friends of Brimsham Park and Lake and local councillors rolled their sleeves up last Saturday and did a really good spring clean of the park. What's more, the bulbs that were planted last autumn are popping up now, so the Park is well worth a visit, particularly on a sunny day. There's a lovely walk around the lake and good play facilities. Children love looking at the wooden fish sculpture - see whether they can spot the baby fish!
The Friends had something to celebrate too - a grant of £2558 from last week's Frome Vale Area Forum for works to control erosion of the lake banks. Coir coils will be used to hold back erosion while providing a habitat for marginal vegetation. (Coir is natural coconut fibre)
Over the next week we'll cover a few more local grants from the Area Forum, and a bit about the organisations who are receiving them.
