Volunteers spruce up Truro beauty spot
Green fingered volunteers were hard at work last week, brightening up a Truro beauty spot.
Furniss Island, on the banks of the River Allen, is named after the popular Cornish biscuit company that once operated a factory in Truro.
A short walk from New Bridge Street and Lemon Quay, the green space offers a haven for office workers to enjoy during their lunch hours.
Kloe Wood Lyndorff, from Truro Green Walks, who organised the “Plant your Park” event, said: “The planting party on Furniss Island was a great success. A host of locals came long to donate plants and help plant up the rest of the plot.
“Thanks to everyone’s hard work, it is really looking great.”
