Budding gardeners descended on Ryelands Park to help add a splash of colour to the park with the planting of 1000 bulbs.

More than 30 children from Lune Park Children’s Centre worked alongside the council’s Ground’s Maintenance Team to plant anemone blanda bulbs as part of a masterplan to improve the look and feel of the park.

The bulbs were funded by community charity Groundwork.

The children and visitors to the park can now look forward to seeing the results of their hard work come into bloom later this year.

Local volunteers have also been busy undertaking other improvement works to the park. Coun David Smith, Cabinet member with responsibility for Environmental Services, said: “It’s great that so many children enjoyed working alongside council staff to help make something special happen in their park this year.

“There is a fantastic amount of work taking place in Ryelands Park and everyone who has volunteered so far should be rightly proud of what has already been achieved.”
