Autumn 2011 at East End Park
The fireworks were spectacular and after a somewhat shaky start the huge bonfire, lit by Cllr Asghar Khan on behalf of the council, was soon well ablaze and many were attracted to the warmth it offered on a cold and wet evening. The ground was very churned up by the number of people and the heavy equipment from the fair but once again Tracy and her crew will do their stuff and get the park ready for Winter.
White Ribbon Campaign will be held across the city on on 25 November 2011 and East End Park will be joining in. Men from our area, together with Cllrs Khan and Grahame and Sgt Coultate and others will be there to lend their support to this worthy cause. The event itself will be taking place centre entrance of the Park at 1.30pm
Friends of East End Park applied for and received £500 from the POCA fund and used the money to buy two banners, one for the Lark in the Park in July and one for the very popular 3 Brass Band Concerts held in the park in the summer but £300 was given to Parks & Countryside to purchase some new rose trees to be planted in the existing rose beds. These bare rooted trees will be planted during the month of November and by summer we should have a riot of blooms for those who use the park to enjoy.
As you see the park is a busy place in all the seasons of the year with new things to see in each phase. The colourful autumn leaves are always a beautiful sight and a gentle walk through the park in the crisp autumn air is one of those treats anyone can enjoy.
Come along and see the park dressed in its autumn finery - it is well worth a visit.
