Maintaining Green Spaces in Thurnscoe
What have we done so far?
Planting Raised Beds
Over the past year we have installed and planted up 3 tier planters, installed matching half moon planters along railings in the centre of the village and planted up a number of raised wild flower beds which produced a dazzling display in the summer. We have also planted and maintained displays at the 3 entrances to the village.
This year we plan to maintain and build on all of this work, introducing hanging baskets and more planters to the village. Interpretation boards will be installed in 3 locations in the village including Thurnscoe Reservoir and Thurnscoe Flower Park.
Our Incredible Edible Thurnscoe project was launched last year and we have to date planted two crops of edible produce for residents to enjoy. Signs have been produced to display alongside IE beds encouraging people to weed and water and help themselves to produce when ready. This year we hope to restore the Pitch and Putt facility at Houghton Road community centre and add edible beds at this location.
We are hoping to have new leisure and play equipment in at least 2 locations this year and we are looking to revamp the underpass at Thurnscoe train station with exciting new art work.
