The Lending a Hand group of volunteers have been busy tidying up the path along Lodore Road, High West Jesmond.
Here is a photograph taken by Chris Morgan who was visiting High West Jesmond at the time and spotted the work party busy with their work.
Chris commented on our Facebook page:
“What a team spirited group. Think they may have persuaded me to do another history walk first Sunday in June 2019. Will have to check diary to confirm in the New Year.”
That’s certainly something to look forward to – last year’s Walking the Bounds of High West Jesmond was a well attended and interesting event.
UPDATE: The Walking the Bounds 2019 will take place on Sunday 2 June 2019. Details will be posted to this website nearer the time.
FOVALD caring for our green spaces
FOVALD (Friends of the Valley, Little Dene and Little Dene Park) is a small voluntary organisation based in High West Jesmond.
They have adopted the Valley from the City Council and Little Dene Park from the City’s Freemen (it is part of the Town Moor).
FOVALD also look after the original Little Dene as a nature resource.
On Tuesday mornings, FOVALD organise’s a group called Lending a Hand that does the maintenance & improvement work on the green spaces in this part of High West Jesmond, as well as keeping all the other verges and paths in the area tidy.
Many thanks to FOVALD and to the Lending a Hand group for their ongoing work to enhance our community green spaces.
