Memorial Garden Spring Bulb Planting
Memorial Garden Spring Bulb Planting: next weekend we'll be planting 2500 bulbs in our memorial garden and we'd love you to help create what should be a spectacular display and wonderful tribute that will last for years. The garden is near the School Pond and the planting will be from 10am to 2pm on Saturday 30th October. We especially welcome children joining in as long as they're accompanied by an adult. Bring a trowel, or ideally a spade and wear suitable clothing, sturdy shoes and gloves and stay for as long as you like - we've got plenty of bulbs to go around. Trustees and our horticultural specialist will be on hand to help out and toilets will be available in the pavilion. If the weather is too bad we'll postpone it to another day, so please check this page on the morning before you leave to confirm it's still going ahead. There is also more information on our website. pewterspeargreentrust.org.uk
Here's what we'll be planting:
250 Narcissi Thalia
1000 Snake's Head Fritillary
See detailed Risk Assessment for the proposed even taking place on Saturday, 30th November 2021, between 10am - 2pm weather permitting.

Statement From The Trustees Regarding the Pavilion
The Trustees were disappointed and surprised that Agoge 2.0 pulled out of plans to rent the Trust's newly refurbished pavilion in Stretton. We heard from their solicitor on 21st September 2021 that they were “no longer in a position to pursue the lease and were withdrawing”.
Only a few days earlier we were assured that their plans to open at the pavilion were on track.
During the building work at the pavilion, the Trust worked closely with Agoge 2.0 and, at their request, made considerable changes to the design and layout to ensure it met their needs.
Despite this setback, the Trustees remain committed to safeguarding the long-term future of the Pavilion by seeking partners who are willing to lease part of the pavilion.
These measures are the only way to stem the losses previously being incurred and will enable the Trust to focus upon its primary responsibility which is to maintain approximately 45 acres of parkland and sports pitches for the benefit of the community.
The Trust is now looking for new tenants for the pavilion and welcomes expressions of interest from any community group, organisation or business. The building will be let on a commercial basis and those interested should first contact Mr. Bradley Read of Read Property Associates for information at the following email address:
All prospective tenants will be required to produce a detailed business plan to enable their proposals to be evaluated and the deadline for submissions is Friday 29th October."
