(In the Copse - Spring Snow Drops)
Recently our Council Ranger, Garry Meyer led an "Introduction to Geocaching" with a Health Walk from Patcham up through Coney Wood, along Green Ridge, down through the Three Cornered Copse and finally through Hove Park. During the walk of about two miles, they used smart phones and GPS devices to find the Geocaches. They used some small, inexpensive items to swap with items found in the Geocaches. This was great fun introduction to Geocaching in a familiar environment.
There are three hidden in the Copse, see if you can find them.
At the last Committee meeting it was felt that leaving some stretches of the grass uncut to create more of a meadow effect would be good, possibly the section between the two groves of trees in the area between the top of Dyke Road Avenue and the King George VI Avenue entrance. It was also suggested that planting some hedgerow trees & shrubs along the base of the bank that borders the top of Dyke Road Avenue would create a screen from the road. If you have any comments, please let us know.
On Bank Holiday Monday 25th May, the annual Hove Carnival takes place. Representatives from the Three Cornered Copse will be sharing a Gazebo with the Friends of Hove Park. (City in Bloom may also join us). We will be talking to those wishing to know more about the Copse and will be selling planted Sunflower seeds to the Children for .50p
The Friends Group will meet up again for our Late Spring Work Session on Saturday 25 April 2015. The work day starts at 10.00am until 1.00pm, always gathering at the bench at the bottom of the green slope, just in front of the grove of Silver Birches. (The Summer Work Session & Barbecue will be held on Saturday 4 July 2015 - 10.00am. to 2.00pm).
If you would like to help, or meet the volunteers, please put the date in your diary. We hope to see you there.
