2015 so far at Fell Foot Park: trees and snowdrops!

We had to remove a tree this month as it had become infected with honey fungus. We had noticed some ground heave around the base of the tree, and decided that it was no longer safe. The photos of it’s last moments are quite dramatic!westmorland tree 3

In more positive news, snowdrops have been spotted just this morning at the park, and they’re very welcome 🙂

2015 so far at Fell Foot Park: flooding!

It’s been a wet and then cold few weeks at Fell Foot Park.  It won’t be surprising to read that there was some flooding over Christmas and into new year, which inundated the cafe, and meant we had to cancel the Parkrun 😦 Pictures below!

Everyone worked hard to get the park cleaned up once the water had receded, and we’re now back to normal, for the moment!
