    10:00 amStarting outside Boots on Blandford Road

    On Sat Feb 9th, 10.00-12.00, we are litter picking from Boots and McCalls along the Blandford Road towards the Hamworthy Dental Practice.

    We are also hoping to do a spot of gardening and get the planters outside Boots/McCalls back into some kind of order.

    Due to the proximity to a big road, this pick is not recommended for smaller children. But older children with responsible adults are welcome.

    Come and make a difference to your local area!

    It's time to make your mark on the park!

    The fence around the paddling pool needs painting so it's nice and smart.

    FOHP Wednesday volunteers have been cleaning the fence, ready for painting.

    Supervised children very welcome!

    Bring old clothes that you don't mind getting splashed in paint.
