Tree improvement works for Phillips Memorial Park in Godalming.

As part of the five year restoration project at the Phillips Memorial Park in Godalming, we will be carrying out tree improvements during February and March.  This is part of Waverley Borough Council’s five year lottery-funded conservation project to enhance the landscape of the park.

Work includes removing some trees to allow better specimens to flourish and pruning others.

New trees have already been planted by volunteers, including several weeping willows along the riverside walk, which will ensure that this important landscape is maintained.

Path closures

Some paths will be closed for your safety while we carry out this work.  We will set up diversions.

Background to the funding

In 2011 Phillips Memorial Park was  awarded five years' funding for restoration and enhancement works through the Parks for People programme, a joint grant scheme run by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and the Big Lottery Fund (BIG).

Volunteer with us

The work will be carried out by contractors and volunteers.

If you would like to get involved in the conservation project,  please come along to our volunteer work parties, which take place most Wednesdays.
