Chatteris Little Acre Pocket Park proving popular in lockdown
Winter weather may be here but the Little Acre Pocket Park in Chatteris is still proving to be a popular destination for dog walkers, families and those who enjoy the wide open skies of the Fens.
The park has been a boon during every lockdown and the latest is no exception with walkers continuing to use the Old Railway Line footpath and bridleway to access the green space and enjoy its physical and mental benefits.
The Friends of the Park (FLAPP) are still busy maintaining and developing the park and over the next few weeks plan to complete hedge planting and lay bark around the many trees which have already been planted.
They will also be completing funding applications seeking help towards the cost of new signs, in particular one showing the layout of the park and another giving information about Fryers Pond and the Fen Tiger statue. After a slow start the pond is starting to really take shape and the Friends are hopeful it will be teaming with wildlife in the spring.
The FLAPP team is small but dedicated and could always do with additional help to keep the park looking at its best. If you have a few hours to spare and like working outdoors please contact the chairman of FLAPP, Ian Mason, on 07979 334833.
