Made in Birmingham Tv visited Hednesford Park today to interview those who run Tennis for Free sessions on Sunday mornings 10am - noon. Hednesford Park won the award for the best site this year for the community involvement and how it supports vulnerable people in the community. This week is Mental Health awareness week. Wolfie and Dawn Harrison (our regular volunteers) explained how this weekly session helps people of all different ages and abilities get fit, make friends and can belong to our lovely friendly community.

The Forest of Mercia came to Girls Venture CORPS Air Cadets (GVCAC) Hednesfor Unit tonight to teach the young ladies how to weave willow. As part of the workshop to make forget-me-not's to decorate Hednesford Park for Dementia Awareness week, they also made rustic bunting and took part in Dementia Friend training, Dementia Friend training is the Alzheimer's Societies National Campaign. The workshop was funded from the Public Health Commissioners Prospectus as part of the Signal Box fund.
It is a beautiful evening in the park.
Hednesford Valley High school Forest School students helped our volunteers plant the last of the trees in the Bring Up the Blossom garden today. The Friends of Hednesford Park got the funding through the Postcode Local Trust to develop an area of the park along the circular route. It is hoped that once established the blossom garden will not only provide a visually attractive entrance to the woodland, but also the colour and scent will be an important sensory element, especially for visitors to the park who are living with dementia.
The blossom garden will also increase the biodiversity within the park and attract wildlife such as pollinating insects and birds.
The Crocus that The Rotary provided have started to emerge in the Park!
