Cherry Fields - The Grand Family Opening Picnic was held on Saturday 2nd September
Participant were able to ride the new bike track, build a den and other craft activities, try out the walks, look over the growing plot and enjoy a picnic in the open air. Listen to the Lincoln Ukulie Band and a fairground Organ. Cherry Fields are on the south side of Fiskerton Road opposite the junction with Laburnum Drive.
The facilities on the new fields include:
MTB / BMX bike track - The track includes jumps and berms but with a flater alternative for those not ready to tackle the harder jumps and ride up the berms. The track is in the lower field among the recently plainted trees. Note it is strictly pedal power only so sorry no motor bikes.
Path to the Delph - This all weather surfaced path allows no only walkers but wheelchair users, mobility scooters, pushchairs and pedal bikes to pass through the fields and on as far as the Delph that runs alongside the River Witham. A bridge will shortly be constructed across the Delph to allow access to the river bank and the Viking way footpath that runs along it. When complete users will be then able to walk along the Viking Way to either Fiskerton or Greetwell.
Woodland Path - This unsurfaced path runs amongst the trees planted on the eastern side of the fields. It is ideal for walkers and those with dogs.
OASIS (nee The Growing Plot) - An area of the lower field has been leased to OASIS, which is managed by Worth Unlimited (part of the Worth Foundation) with the aid of volunteers from the community. It is aimed at helping marginalised teenagers through Social and Therapeutic Horticultural Gardening to give them a better start in life.
We plan to hold a community bulb planting day on 21st October from 10.00am onwards.
