Come to country park day

The Friends of Shipley Country Park are holding an open day on Saturday October 20 as part of a campaign to recruit new members.

Future projects on the 600 acre park include the management of an ancient wood and a memorial garden. Secretary Sue Clarke said: “We are looking for anybody interested in the physical conservation or working on the management committee.”

The event runs from 10am to 1pm in the green room at the vistors’ centre and refreshments are provided. For more information email
