Join local people to improve 'Bird Walk'
This Saturday and Sunday local volunteers will be planting and tidying in the alleyway between Wincott Street and Oakden Street. Local residents are welcome to join the volunteers between 10am and 3pm - donations of plants, bulbs and seeds very welcome (hardy plants which like the shade would be most suitable).
The alleyway has recently been resurfaced with new planting beds, to coincide with Archbishop Sumner School's reception classes' move to the Oakden Street site.
The planting is a resident-led initiative to help improve the alleyway. We are also looking into naming the alleyway and getting it properly 'adopted' by the Council. The frontrunner name is 'Bird Walk', as nearby Monkton Street used to be called 'Bird Street'. The school is also investigating whether mural painting might be a way for the children to help brighten up the route.
