Create a blaze of colour in your local park by joining The Parks Trust’s daffodil bulb planting day.

On Saturday, October 27, as part of national Make A Difference Day, the Trust is aiming to plant 10,000 daffodil bulbs at 10 different sites across the city.

The Parks Trust is inviting anyone interested in improving their local parks and green spaces to volunteer for an hour or two to help plant bulbs.

All ages and family groups are welcome but please bring a trowel or spade and come dressed appropriately for gardening, preferably with gloves.

Bulb planting will take place at Tattenhoe Park, Campbell Park, Woolstone Green, Ashland, Broughton Gate, Oxley Park, Kingsmead, Monkston Park, Great Holm and Shenley Wood between either 10am and 12pm or 2pm and 4pm.

Briony Serginson, head of community engagement, said: “To help us celebrate our 20th anniversary we’re planting an additional 10,000 daffodil bulbs across the city with the help of the local community. These bulbs will create a welcome burst of colour after the cold winter months.”
