Farr Hall Drive Area
The Society is very concerned about the 'discovery' of the Farr Hall Drive area by developers, and their proposals for developments (largely flats) which are out of character. A number of these are referred to within the Planning - Recent Activity page together with action taken by the Society.

Belated thanks to all those who helped Angie Mounsey with the clearing and winter planting of the flowerbeds by Castle Buildings. It was great to have so much help and the pansies have received many positive comments! As it turned out, the weather was good for the planting and, as we all know only too well, there has since been an abundance of rain! Inevitably at this time of year, falling leaves and other debris require regular clearing to enable the new planting to mature and provide a colourful display to be enjoyed by all over the coming winter months.
