Bulb Planting in Sutton Common Park: Monday 27th November 2023
As part of Glenthorne’s programme of community action, thirty intrepid students headed to Sutton Common Park to work with Dawn Fielding, the London Borough of Sutton’s Project and Volunteer Coordinator, to plant daffodils in the park. After a brief lesson on how to plant the bulbs, Dawn distributed the tools for the job and the students got to work! The students were quick learners and enjoyed the physical work; they did a fantastic job planting 750 bulbs in the park. They even managed to avoid the rain!
Dawn was keen to work with the students again on other volunteering activities in other green spaces in Sutton.
The students also met representatives of “Friends of Sutton Common Park” who were also present and carrying out their Autumn bulb planting programme in the park – they were delighted to have the help and support of a group of such enthusiastic and willing helpers!
