The Friends of Quarry Park write:
“Friends of Quarry Park had a successful and Seasonal end to 2020 with a volunteer Work Party held on Friday 11 December.
“Nine volunteers with two DMBC Countryside Rangers cleared and cut back overgrown areas in the Car Park on St Marys Road. Volunteers dressed in Christmas Jumpers and hats took part in a festive video which was displayed on the Friends’ Facebook page.
“Due to the Covid-19 lockdown volunteer work parties are on hold once again. This does not mean that work will stop completely, FOQP volunteer litter pickers will still be going out on an individual basis and they gathered three bags of litter in one session recently from the Post Office path. This is in addition to the regular users of Quarry Park who pick up on their daily walks and let us know of any problems. This is much appreciated.
“Thanks to all those using Quarry Park who have been following guidance on Social Distancing and keeping dogs under close control. Please take notice of any signs put up by DMBC in the play areas and exercise equipment. This is very important to keep everyone safe at this time.
“There may occasionally be times when there are delays in emptying bins, if this happens please help by taking litter and dog waste home with you rather than leaving it by the bins.
“There were lots of people enjoying the snow on Quarry Park last week (January) and we were pleased to notice that not too much debris was left behind after sledging on the mound, thanks to all who took their home- made sledges away with them.
“We hope everyone taking their daily exercise on Quarry Park continue to enjoy their visits. After a dormant period things are starting to wake up with some bulbs making an appearance. We look forward to more signs of Spring to come.”
