Doors to the fairy homes have appeared on trees around the park as a way of firing the imaginations of youngsters over the summer holidays.

Thanks to funding from Avenue Services and Sanctuary Housing, there are a number of doors for families to discover, as well as an entrance leading to an ogre cave which, according to local legend, the ogre leaves every night to cause mischief around the area.

Sandra Hewitt, Avenue Services’ neighbourhood and locality officer, said: “Legend has it that when the ogre comes out at night, the fairies have until the morning to tidy up the mess he leaves behind before they all return to their homes.

“We’re always looking to support exciting activities for our residents and we’re committed to funding and delivery projects that benefit the Blacon community.”
