Jubilee Park in Fangfoss is looking lovely and bright this spring thanks to the work of a hard-working teenager.

Danielle Davy, 14, of Fangfoss, is a member of the Ranger Guides from Pocklington and chose to work at Jubilee Park over a period of six months as part of the volunteering section of her Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award.

During the summer months she kept the Park free from weeds, spread wildflower seeds and helped at fundraising events. In the autumn she went out and bought a large sack of daffodil bulbs and planted them throughout the park.

Now her hard work can be seen to have paid off. There are patches of golden daffodils all over the place, giving a real touch of spring to the park.

A spokesperson for the Jubilee Park committee, which maintains the park, said: “We are very grateful for all the hard work Danielle has done for us. At times it is quite hard manual work and Danielle has just got on and done it. The park is certainly looking nicer thanks to her efforts”.
