Friends of Barnes are holding an open day to give people the opportunity to look at the refurbished pavilion on Vine Road.

Visitors with also get the chance to explore the polytunnel and speak to staff and trustees. Council officers will also be on hand to answer questions and visitors will get the chance to share their views and ideas.

Chairman Mike Hildesley said: "Vine Road has been a much-loved and much-used site for generations. During our four years here, our priority has been to improve the public toilets, to provide a water fountain for both humans and dogs, and to add more enjoyable and affordable activities for the community. Now is a chance to hear some ideas we have or that have been put to us, as well as to let us know any changes you would welcome, and any concerns you might have."

There will be a nature trail for children and chances to try making hand pressed apple juice, as well as making recycled paper pot for a bulb to take home. There will also be a demonstration pump track staffed and overseen by an outside group, as well as teas and coffees provided by Feast of Barnes.

The open day will be held on October 27 and there will be short presentations are planned 10.30 – 11.15 am and again 13.30 – 14.15 pm.
