Rotunda Park birds

Sadly our beautiful rotunda has been demolished, after being discovered ridden with white ants some time back. All that remains now is the base of the flag pole!

The Newstead Rotunda, 17th May 2015 – prior to its demolition.

I, along with many Newstead residents, eagerly await its resurrection. Rotunda Park is a wonderful community asset, enjoyed by people and birds alike.
