NEWS


We have made an application to retain the Green Flag, an award which we are hopeful to receive again for the  6thyear in a row.


We have received a donation of £40.00 from the Whitley Bay Comrades Club. Many thanks this will be used to replace some of our well-worn tools.


Many thanks also to North Tyneside Council who quickly cleared the biggest pile of Christmas trees we have ever had in the car park.


After some complaints about the muddy area at the top of the steps at the eastern end of the dene top, we are going to set in some paving slabs to make access to these steps safer.



REPAIRS
















Many thanks to Capita who have just replaced to the damaged steps down from Astley Drive at the west end of the dene, and for replacing the damaged cross member on the main bridge.  Photo above.


We have replaced the anti-skid on the new section of this bridge.




WILD FLOWERS



Snowdrops seem to be in bloom all over the lower dene and Winter Aconite are also in bloom on the western bank.


Daffodil’s are in bloom along the western end of the dene top, along Dog Violets and Spring Crocus should be appearing soon.
