Planting in the Sensory Garden

Six Friends of Millhouses Park volunteers and two-year-old Freddy have planted up the sensory garden octagon with herbs kindly donated by Ferndale Garden Centre. Wild flower seeds, donated by Pictorial Meadows of Manor Oaks Farm, were sown alongside the entrance path to the sensory garden. Many thanks to both organisations.

Spring Bird Watching Walk Saturday 25th April

Saturday 25th April, meet at 8:00am at the foot of the steps into Millhouses Park from Archer Road.

The gentle¬†walk will take us through Millhouses Park and back through part of Ecclesall Woods and will¬†last about two hours. This is the time of year when bird song is at its best and many of the summer migrants will be back in our area. In previous years we’ve seen or heard up to 30 species during the walk. All are welcome and there are binoculars available for participants to borrow.
