Lichfield volunteer group to make Beacon Park stream improvements

Beacon Park’s stream is set to be improved thanks to the work of volunteers.

Members of Lichfield District Council’s Countryside & Parks Conservation Group (CPCG) will be rolling up their sleeves next month to give another city park a mini makeover.

On February 5 and 19, from 10.30am to 3pm, they will don their wellies to make improvements to the stream.

Councillor Andrew Smith, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure & Parks, said: “The Countryside & Parks Conservation Group does a fantastic job in helping us to look after and improve the district’s parks and green spaces.

“These two events will help to maintain Leomansley Brook, which runs through Beacon Park. It will involve clearing back scrub and vegetation and digging silt out to make the stream flow better.”

Anyone over 18 years of age can volunteer. All tools are provided as well as light snacks. Wearing outdoor waterproof clothes and sturdy footwear or wellies is recommended.

To book a shout to join the volunteers, call Denice Deverall at Lichfield District Council on 01543 308183 or email denice.deverall@lichfielddc.gov.uk.
