Working Parties

Every year we liaise with the WDC to see how we can improve any areas of the Fields either by removing litter, clearing brambles, pruning lower branches of trees, revamping flower beds, planting bulbs or renewing hedgerows. Any mechanical work that needs to be done is carried out beforehand by the contractors Veolia, then the Friends of Abbey Fields’ band of volunteers set to work. It is amazing how much you learn as you work and it is very fulfilling to know that you have contributed to an area that has been worked on.
