Join our Parks Outreach Team every Friday morning in June to hand-pull the invasive Himalayan balsam in Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park.

Help manage the spread of this non-native species before it sets seed.

Light refreshments will be provided at the end of the morning. 

The meeting point is the lower car park.
