Help in making our park bloom

[Excerpt from Stockport Times 12/10/06]
Friends of Rose Vale Park are hoping thousands of daffodil bulbs will bring new life in more ways than one. The Heald Green group will be planting a Marie Curie Daffodil field of Hope next month.
Members of the public will be able to sponsor one of 2,500 bulbs for £1 in aid of the cancer charity.
The Mayor and Mayoress of Stockport will be putting trowel to soil on the planting day in November; when two new park benches will be unveiled thanks to a £1,000 grant from the Brookfield House Trust.
The Friends formed in December last year witha vision to completely revitalise the 14-acre park.
Play equipment installed in 1972 is in the process of being condemned by the council as unsafe, with some pieces already removed.
The planting will take place on November 4 at 9.30am.
