At this time of year many visitors start to go out and about into our parks, gardens, allotments, beaches, rivers and community events such as fairs. The spring weather begins the change in visitor numbers that we see continuing on into summer and autumn. Hopefully, this will be a more normal year all round than the previous two! Let's hope it's eggcellent (groan).

It was lovely recently to attend the 100 year celebration of Backhouse Park. Mary Todner the Chair of the Friends of Backhouse Park can be seen standing pictured on the left above with Sunderland Symphony Orchestra behind playing in the sunshine. It was lovely to see a friends group added so much extra value to their park.

Backhouse Park has been selected as part of their efforts as a hedgehog release area. Hedgehog populations have been in drastic decline for the past thirty years and are heading for the 'red list' which means they are becoming endangered. It is wonderland to see the work being done like this to help save them. We will look forward with interest to updates in the future.
As always we remain active on Facebook with our group. The idea of the group from the very beginning that it would be for all people who love our parks, green spaces, nature reserves, gardens, allotments, beaches and waterways. If you have an event or looking for information from the wider population related to the purposes of SG&OSF then please submit a post to that group.

We are on Twitter too, but updates tend to be far less frequent on there.

Hope to see you there. For now stay safe and keep us updated.
