The family of Lesley Stonehouse have planted a tree in Heaton Moor Park (Peel Moat Road) to celebrate her life.   She regularly walked in this park with her grandchildren at play, no doubt she will watch over them now as they grow up still chasing round the paths.

Lesley touched many peoples’ lives and I’m sure they miss her as we, her family miss her.

The park is predominantly green and this tree, come the autumn turns brilliant crimson, purple and orange; it will stand out.

A big thank you to everyone who came along to join in the fun on Saturday 31 March. 

Thank you to all our volunteers:

the local Rotary club, the Scouts, family of Friends of Heaton Moor Park, friends and neighbours. 

Without their help the event would not have been so successful.

A special thank you to the Co-op in Heaton Moor who donated the hot cross buns which we sold at the Easter Egg Hunt. 

We will let you know in due course how much money was raised.

On an overcast but dry and not too cold day, a group set to work cutting back some of the bushes near the central bed and around other parts of the park. This complemented the recent work done by Peter who the group pay to work in the park for a day every two weeks.

Meanwhile others started to wash down the railings on the gates of the park to clean moss away. There were a total of nine giving their time over the period. A warm welcome to Karla and Adam, two new enthusiasts!

Hot drinks and cake in the pavilion left a feeling of a job well done.

Thank you to Besses O' The Barn Brass Band and Do Your Thing Choir for supporting us to sing carols in the park on Saturday. Thank you also to everyone who turned up to sing, visit Father Christmas or buy tombola tickets or a refreshment. 

It couldn't be done without our small band of dedicated volunteers. A big thank you to all those who helped in any way. 

Thanks are also due to the local Co-op stores for providing mulled wine and mince pies.

Carols in the Park enjoyed by all

A big thank you to all friends, families and neighbours who turned out to sing carols along with the Besses 'o th' Barn brass band and Do Your Thing choir on 17 December. 

Many enjoyed a hot drink and a mince pie and caught up with friends. Little ones enjoyed a visit to Father Christmas.

The Friends of Heaton Moor Park appreciate all the support.
