Friends of Ancells Farm are working on a project to make the park a safer place to play and enjoy our wonderful community. The project is the most ambitious project that we have undertaken so far and will take place in various stages, according to when funding is secured.
In November 2017, to kick start this project, we planted more hedging and crocus bulbs in between the existing banks of hedges, so that the barrier is complete at the Farm Drive end of the park. Our thanks go to the Woodland Trust for donating the saplings, to Fleet Rotary for donating the Crocus bulbs as part of the End Polio Now campaign and also to Rushmoor Council for grant funding to support this element of the project.
In spring 2018 we enhanced the Farm Drive entrance with a beautiful planted area to welcome you to our lovely park and provide a more attractive barrier to the road and culvert than the current bramble patch! Our thanks go to Rushmoor Council for grant funding to support this element of the project.
We will install new barriers on the path at the Farm Drive entrance.
We will replace the 30 year old fence and gate on the under 5’s play area and extend it so that there is space for more play equipment in future.
We will extend the path around the side of the park to lead from the pavilion round the edge of the park to the far end of the park at Ancells Road. This will improve the accessibility to the park from that end of the park.
