Thank you to Jake, Senior Engagement Officer for The Wildlife Trust for Birmingham and the Black Country for leading the walk and bringing along the bat detectors. Also thanks to the volunteers of Friends of Tividale Park Volunterers who helped at
the hub or on the walk and of course the 35 guests who came on the night.
Thank you to everyone who made donations towards our charity
The wildlife did not disappoint either, and we have a few hot spots of activity in the park.
May 2021 was a new start for Friends of Tividale Park. Following our AGM, Sharon Davies has been elected as the new Chair, taking over from Max Robinson, who has served since 2017 to 2021.

Our volunteers have been out litter picking the park on a number of occasions this year; we welcome volunteers to join us and help keep the park looking its best.
June is a great time to start foraging, and Tividale Park has a selection of plants that can be eaten. At the end of May / start of June Elder flowers were blooming in the park, but as of 05/06/21 has turned brown due to the sun. Flowers will become berries soon, which can be used for jams.
