Depot Fence has now been painted Olive Green

The Depot fence has been painted olive green & matches with the grass.

Miles Harris has been as good as his word & the Community Payback Team did it today

Another FOSAP success story.

Now we must keep it pristine & ensure that any Graffiti is painted out by the Park staff.

All the Best,
