Silver Gilt for Nonsuch Park

Nonsuch MansionNonsuch Park’s has won Silver Gilt in the South & South East In Bloom 2017, Heritage Park and Large Park categories.

This is a fantastic achievement particularly in the Heritage Category as the other Silver Gilt awards were given to ‘pay to enter’ gardens and/or parks which have received significant lottery investment.

This would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our staff and volunteer groups.  The Nonsuch Voles who look after the woodland and gardens, The Friends of Nonsuch who look after the Museum and help restore historical features in the gardens and Nonsuch Watch who contribute towards supporting the rich biodiversity of the park.

 

Volunteers are winning the battle with canadian goldenrod

Warren Farm Meadow has now been mowed, ready for the Autumn.

A monster Thank You to all the Volunteers, who helped pull out canadian goldenrod, as you walked around, walking the dog.

A special Thank You to Roger, Mike Constable and Mike’s dog Dexter, who did so much of the hard work. They were there most days, come rain or sunshine, from mid April.

The difference has been tremendous. Last year “Park run Field” was full of goldenrod, but it is no longer there. Roughly two thirds of Warren Farm has now been cleared of goldenrod

The goldenrod will come back in Parkrun Field, but it will be thinner, less vigorous and much easier to pull.
