Everyone’s invited to roll up their sleeves to plant spring bulbs on Saturday 2 November 2013.

Thanks to a donation of £200 by County Councillor Sue Woodward, through the Staffordshire Local Community Fund, Lichfield District Council’s parks team is inviting local people to help plant more than 1,500 bulbs at ChaseTerracePark this November.

The bulbs will be planted under the trees and around the main entrance of the park. Come the spring, the park should be a riot of colour when English bluebells, snowdrops and daffodils come into bloom.

Councillor Val Richards, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure, Communications & Tourism, said: “This is a good opportunity for local people to volunteer for their park. We’d like to thank Councillor Woodward for donating the bulbs, and look forward to seeing the flowers in all their glory.”

Staffordshire County Councillor for Chase Terrace Ward, Susan Woodward, said: “ChaseTerracePark is a little gem – a real asset to the local community that is valued and well-used, so I hope we’ll get lots of local people of all ages coming along to lend a hand. We can all then look forward to a fantastic display next spring and know that we’ve been a part of it.”

The bulb planting day is taking place at ChaseTerracePark, which is on High Street in Burntwood, on Saturday 2 November from 11am to 2pm. All tools will be provided, but if you have gardening gloves, please bring them with you.
