People are being invited to help out at the last volunteers event of the year for a pocket park.

Desborough Town Council is responsible for Desborough Pocket Park, but it is maintained by a group of volunteers with the support of many organisations.

Regular events are held during the year to clear up and maintain the site, with the final one of the year taking place on Saturday, November 4, from 10am until midday.

Anyone who would like to volunteer can go along and help with various tasks lined up to get the park ready for the winter months.

And there will be free soup for volunteers once the work is done.

Activities carried out at previous volunteer events include pruning, strimming, bulb planting and litter picking.

Accompanied children are welcome and they can try their hand at pond dipping.

Anyone who goes along to help is advised to wear suitable clothing and footwear, and tools will be provided.

Entrances to the park are from Rothwell Road, Federation Avenue and via Prince Rupert Avenue.
