The Rotary Club of Doncaster has started work on a number of improvements to Jubilee Park at Hatfield. With agreement from the Town Council they have started pruning existing trees to lift their crowns and improve their appearance.This will also avoid damage to the lower branches, which could lead to disease and rot affecting the main trunks and eventually killing the trees.
The next stage will be the provision of a ditch to prevent access by quad bikes and other vehicles which have caused damage and nuisance to other users of the Park. The Council will also provide proper access barriers at entry points on North Ings Road.
Finally, it is hoped to plant new trees above the ditch to improve the general appearance and to attract wildlife.
The park is a tremendous asset to local residents for dog walking, exercise, games and fresh air. It is a wonderful green space, on our doorstep, that needs looking after said Rotarian Peter Wyatt, who lives in Hatfield.
