Friends of Ancells Farm are working on a project to make the park more colourful and accessible for the enjoyment of our wonderful community. The project is the most ambitious project that we have undertaken so far.
In November 2017, we started with planting more hedging and crocus bulbs in between the existing banks of hedges, so that the road barrier is complete at the Farm Drive end of the park.
In spring 2018 we enhanced the Farm Drive entrance with a beautiful planted area to welcome you to our lovely park. Much more attractive than the previous bramble patch!
In 2020 we planted a new entrance area along the Ancells Road end of the park. We also planted English Bluebell bulbs in the woods, we’re really looking forwards to seeing them flower in the spring.
Our thanks go to the Woodland Trust, Fleet Rotary and to Rushmoor Borough Council for grant funding and donations of plants and bulbs. We truly couldn’t have got this far without you!
The next stage of this project is to install a new path from the new entrance around to the bridges to create a path around the whole park by linking existing paths. We also aim, to install staggered barriers on the path entrances and replace & extend the 30 year old fence and gate on the under 5’s play area once we can secure funding.
