Addiscombe Railway Park

Event 21st August 2011


Thank you Volunteers your assistance was much appreciated.


We held our first public event on 21st August 2011 in the park.

A large number of people turned up, both those interested in what was happening and volunteers who were willing to help with a little gardening work.

Work started at around 14:00 and continued until around 16:30. We were very fortunate with the weather, with conditions dry and sunny.

Equipment and tools were provided by BTCV.

Four teams were deployed.


There were reports of many ladybirds and a frog being found during clearance work near the school, but unfortunately no photographs.


Comments & Feedback

A young volunteer wrote: "I really enjoyed today. Everyone was really friendly and we did a lot of hard work that paid off".
