Bingham Park - New Sakura Trees being planted Saturday 4th December. 10:30 AM
The planting of 30 Sakura trees in the park will take place at 10.30 on Saturday 4th December near the children's playground.
It was a great honour for Bingham Park to be selectedas one of only two locations in the London Borough ofCroydon to receive a donation of Sakura trees as partof a project to celebrate the relationship between the UK and Japan. Sakura is the Japanese term for ornamental cherry blossom trees and their blossoms.
The project also aims to raise awareness of Japanese life and history, and to learn fromeach other's cultures and traditions. These trees will create a legacy for the futuregenerations and are being planted in parks and public spaces across the United Kingdom.
The celebration on the 4th December will also mark the Queen's Green Canopy project.This is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee in 2022 which encourages people from across the United Kingdom to "Plant a Tree for theJubilee" Contributing to the enhancement of our environment.

Update on the condition of Ashburton Park
After enquiries from FOAP, the Council Parks Dept have now advised us that the damaged area in the large field is soon to be cordoned off and works to reinstate will proceed as and when the weather and ground permits.
Seeding of the area may be done in the Spring so the area could be out of use for some time.
FOAP will continue to engage with the Council to ensure this is completed satisfactorily and that any other issues with regard to the park are brought to their attention promptly.
The Association also writes regularly to the Council on issues such as fly-tipping, street lighting and traffic/parking, BHRA worked with the council on behalf of residents to limit the use of Tenterden Road, Pagehurst and Wydehurst for the numerous fun fairs, main entry is now via the new double gates at the front of Ashburton Park.
The BHRA was formed 35 years ago to give a voice to local people on issues that matter to them.
The BHRA Committee meets regularly to listen to local concerns and to plan social events, to which all members are invited.
Each road covered by the Association has a representative who is automatically on the committee to ensure that issues are raised and heard.
Recent Matters under discussion have inevitably been the Blackhorse Lane Bridge closure and is negative impact on local residents and local traders, and the newly refurbished Ashburton Hall.
