We can see clearly now the trees have gone...!

You may have noticed, if not heard, some activity over by Bowen Court on Friday. If you haven't been to that area in the park you will notice a bit of a difference.

We had Tony and Rob, the tree fellers (or is that tree fellas?) come into the park and give a good tidy up to the dell.

They have shortened some trees and tall bushes. This has been done for security reasons. The trees/bushes were causing an obstructed view over the garages. Also it will make for a more secure walk back into the park from the garage.

It's also good to know that the tree felling/clearing of the area, was done with the minimal amount of disturbance to the wildlife that lives in the dell.



Don't forget! If you have any news, view or stories about the park, please get in touch :)

What a load of rubbish!

Good news. We may finally be rubbish free very soon!

No one could have missed the situation that had occurred in the estate over Christmas and into the new year. Our rubbish over flowed onto the pavements.

The good news is that Metro are hiring a private waste disposal firm to come out and remove the backlog of rubbish.
Apart from being an eyesore, it's also a health and safety issue.
BBC Midlands Today came to visit our park yesterday and even did a live news report from the bin area at the back of Bowen Court which was broadcast on the the 1.30 news. I gave a quick interview and made a few comments about the state the bin areas and that we were having a private company come in to remove the rubbish.

So our estate makes the news and we will be rubbish free soon! Not a bad start to the week on Wake Green Park :)
