Jen Oxley

Well Jen has been busy on another new area. She has moved further along towards Rowena Ave and transformed another patch of overgrown nettles into a garden.

Here is how it looked  before Jen arrived with her tools!  Then again, after numerous green bins were filled (with kind resident’s permission). Thank you Jen.

Exciting Improvements To Tesco Field.

This all began early last year when Edenthorpe Parish Council requested that a park be situated on Marian Rd Playing Fields just as it used to be many years ago. Sadly, but understandably this couldn’t go ahead because the Playing Fields are now used as a training ground and hold events for Edenthorpe Junior FC.

Fred Gee and Anne Flanagan met up with Council officers in Thorne and negotiations began. Section 106 monies were available for the improvement of  open space in the area. Consultation events were held and many residents attended. Local school children gave their thoughts and pupils from Edenthorpe Hall Primary School submitted designs.

It seems that all this has now culminated in exciting plans being drawn up and the construction work to be during the Summer of 2017.

EDENTHORPE PLANTERS

Summer Bedding Plants.

On Friday 2nd June, just before the rain began (and during a heavy downpour) the planters around the village were filled with a variety of Summer bedding plants. The majority of these have been grown by our very own Chairman – Fred Gee.

Parish Councillors Fred Gee, Paul Bissett, Dave Barrow and Clerk Anne Flanagan cleared out the planters and topped them up with fresh compost before adding the new plants. Fred Gee then followed up afterwards with the bowser to give them a really good water. (It has rained ever since)!

It would really help if villagers living nearby the planters could give them some water during dry spells. A special mention to Dr and Mrs Griffiths who helped Fred fill the planter on Lyndale Ave, they have always helped with watering too.  Thank you. 🙂

SNICKETY GARDENS

ATTENTION – EDENTHORPE RESIDENTS!

Please can all residents look out for our newly established Snickety Gardens.

Sadly, over the Bank Holiday weekend somebody thought it would be a great idea to snap flower heads off a lot of plants. One foxglove still had a bee in the flower head which was lying on the floor. Why do this?

MINDLESS VANDALISM.

These gardens were created by local resident Jen in her own time. She has worked relentlessly over the past 18 months, locals have donated plants, tools and continue to do so. These snickets are unique and are an asset to the village.

PLEASE CAN EVERYONE KEEP A LOOK OUT FOR ANY ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR AND LET US KEEP THESE BORDERS LOOKING AMAZING.

The flowers look so much better on the living plant than lying dead on the floor.

Crescent Gardens.

Jen has recently begun to work on the semi circle of overgrown garden off The Crescent. This has been left for many years. It is already looking great as Jen has attacked it and begun planting. Jen is one amazing lady!

Please feel free to water any of these areas along with the planters which will be filled later this week.
