Nonsuch 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.
The contractors building the Trim Trail in Cheam Rec, appear to be working at a snails pace.
Sutton Council was promised they would only take 10 days to do the work. They are now on day 11 and have still only put in 4 items of kit. Officers from Sutton Council are now chasing the contractors to get the work done.
The Council have mad it clear work must be finished by Friday 21st July, in time for the school holidays.
The Friends of Cheam Park and Sutton Council are planning on planting more trees in Cheam Park.
Please come and join us. We need all the help we can get!!
This will be on Saturday 26th November, between 10:00 and 1:00. We will meet at Cheam Park Cafe
We will be planting a mixture of mature trees and small saplings.
Cheam Park has been transformed since we started planting trees on it. The area has become a haven for wildlife and is just beautiful to visit. Planting close to the wildlife rich Ancient Woodland site of Nonsuch Woods, means we are extending the habitat for the Woodland wildlife.
We all know that in Winter time, there is a great deal of water run off, which comes off the Park and adds to the flooding. As the mature, the trees will absorb some of the water and airate the soil reducing the amount of run off.
And finally….The UK has only 13% woodland cover, compared with an EU average of 37%. It is good to know we are going our bit to improve that figure.
