Dixon Green Park litter and gardening group

Group Logo

Our aim is to breath new life into Dixon green park on Harrowby St/Mossfield Road farnworth.

We started off by intending to just litter pick but within our first trip out we began weeding, then cultivating the soil, strimming the grass and then cutting back the hedges that had grown in awkward directions other than upwards. There are currently only 5 of us but others have offered to help out. A lot of people are currently isolating so difficult for them to attend at the same time but at weekend there are a regular team of 3 who meet at the same time, keep a distance and start gardening. We have began to uncover the rose bushes that covered the hedges and where a beautiful feature when I was a kid.

I have hopefully got support from a company who will provide us with skips or bags to have our rubble removed free of charge. Hopefully that will come soon so we can remove the heaps that are growing. Once removed you can then see how far we have got by just putting in a couple of hours a week.

The section we have begun in was called the rose garden, we want this back hopefully with new benches and then locals can come and just sit, relaxing and enjoy the space.
