Revamp for Coneygear Park in Huntingdon

Huntingdon’s Coneygear Park has been revamped by Groundwork East’s Green Team 12 Project in Cambridgeshire.
Work started at the park in February, but due to the pandemic, the project was halted in March.
Work started again in September and the team has planted apple and pear trees, raised beds, a pergola and put in benches, blocked paving and slabbing and a nature area.
Andrea Finbow and Matt Langley from Groundwork East headed up the project and guided a group of students through the course.
They commented that the students should all be extremely proud of themselves after achieving a Level 1 Award in Practical Horticulture. Due to the pandemic, the students were unable to have a celebratory event.
