The Friends' work party today completed some of the winter works begun on the rockery last week and did a litter pick inside St George's Park and around the perimeters on both Radford Avenue and the Ring Road. Soon LEAP will be dominating our activities and we have been discussing forthcoming sowing and propagating arrangements today. But for now we have been doing what the Friends group have been consistently doing since 2012 when we asked Wyre Forest District Council to end herbicide use in the park and that is general maintenance, weeding, edging and cutting back shrubs etc. The LEAP team is a weekly occurrence in the park. It was good to get more positive feedback from several people passing through the park today, it is our most consistent source of data on our impact and so far it has been entirely supportive of the Let's Eat the Park project. Unfortunately it is not possible to capture and bottle this goodwill except as anecdotal evidence that what the team does is appreciated by the majority of people in the area of all ages, races, levels of ability and both sexes. This sort of data is invaluable to impact assessments, but it happens spontaneously and is freely given without prompting so is like Scotch mist, our evidence base struggles to capture the way people engage with the project and all the other free stuff the Friends group arrange in the park.
