Well that’s the Holliday Park fence painted again, should be good for at least a couple of years. Danny Bone (Chair of FOLM), Mick Brett and Paul Taylor from the Friends of Langley Moor would like to say a big thank you to the guys from Tesco’s Langley Moor and Durham County Council for their fantastic help and support. A special thanks also to Reprotec, who are based in the High Street in Langley Moor, who kindly funded the total cost of the Hammerite we used to paint the fencing. Some images below, including before and after shots.
This morning (27 April 2016), before the very seasonable rain, hail and snow, our Chair – Danny – and another seven volunteers (including five from our local Tesco) completed another successful litter pick in the village.
The team picked the path and riverside between Stonebridge and Langley Bridge. The picture shows some of the team from Tesco and Danny. The pile of bags looks smaller than normal because half of them were actually collected whilst the pick was in progress!
This pick takes the total so far this year to 66 bags. That’s 91 bags in total if we include our first ever pick last year!
What a wonderful afternoon had by all. The official opening of the new play areas in Holliday Park took place this afternoon (20 April, 2.00pm).
Many, many thanks to everyone that attended. All the children present seemed to really enjoy themselves and even the weather was great for this special occasion! Pictures from today:
Four volunteers braved the snow, rain and cold on Saturday morning (16 April) for our third Community Litter Pick. Some very interesting items recovered from Goatbeck, Langley Moor this morning; a camping kettle, a bag of six empty bottles of Prosecco, half a child’s bike, and a pair of trousers! Our volunteers filled 18 bags!
Our Chair, Danny, also organised an additional litter pick on Monday 18 April with three managers and three staff volunteers from Tesco. The pick took place along the Bishop Brandon walkway from Brandon Lane to the Cricket Club at Brandon. Our volunteers filled 14 bags.
These two picks takes the total picked to 75 bags collected from our four litter picks.
These picks were completed with our newly acquired equipment purchased with a donation from the Temperance Trust .
If anyone wants to put forward an area in Langley Moor for our next litter pick please let us know.
Just in time for the Easter holidays, Holliday Park is completed and open for business to be enjoyed by all!
Unfortunately the seat and down wire is missing from our zip wire, but this certainly doesn’t spoil the enjoyment of the other facilities, which within moments of the security fencing being taken down, were being tested by local children! Picnic benches and seating are installed and awaiting some good weather!
We are very proud of our new park, and very thankful to everyone who helped make this project a reality.
Work is progressing at a steady pace in Holliday Park! See the images below for the latest work installing new surfaces and pathways and the ‘speckled’ safety surface!
The refurbishment of the play area in Holliday Park is getting nearer…
Weather permitting, work should begin on Monday 22 February. You will recall all the new play equipment has been chosen by local children. New fencing and picnic tables and more will be installed.
Can’t wait to see it when it is all finished.
Following on from the success of our first community litter pick, we have organised a second litter pick. We’d be extremely grateful for any volunteers to help keep Langley Moor tidy!
Volunteers are asked to meet at 9.30am at Boyne Place, Langley Moor on Saturday 20 February 2016.
If children are present, we ask that they are accompanied by an adult at all times.
Equipment will be supplied.
Wonderful news to start the New Year. The Big Play application which was made to Sita Trust for £30,000 has been successful.
This money will form part of the funding to progress the Holliday Park project! Exciting times for the project and Langley Moor.
