As well as planting the tree(s) which will be paid for by the money raised by the Scarecrow trail, there’ll be a host of FREE activities, including Forest Schools (childrens’ activities), worm charming, games, science surveys and a chance to find out about ParkActive, the Friends’ volunteering scheme. For allotment holders, this is also a chance to do what is possibly the most quick and satisfying weeding you’ll ever do – Himalayan balsam. It’s so easy to pull up, you can clear large areas in minutes. For more information, find the Friends in their marquee in Butcher Terrace Field (near Millennium Bridge) on the 31st, or see
