2018 news
Date Published: Wed 3rd Oct

All our 2018 news is available in the newsletters section, but there have been a few hi-lights.

We had a Fete on the first May Bank Holiday Monday, which was a great success, with lovely weather. The community picnic in July as part of Love Parks Week was in scorching weather! While our litter pick in March was re-scheduled due to snow and freezing tempertures. 

The weather also played a part in the amazing blooms in the planters along the bowling green and playground railings. A big thanks to the volunteer squad who watered them through the hot spell. 

The park has remained busy during the year, from sledging to summer holiday ice-creams, and the Friends group are now planning for the next lot of seasonal events: Apple Day, Halloween and Christmas carols. 

2017
Date Published: Mon 7th Aug 2017

The Friends group has remained active during 2017, just a little quietly! All our news can be found in the newsletters section. 

In brief, we decided not to hold a Funday in May, due to both costs and the work from volunteers required to put it on. We have held some smaller events: a successful stand alone Dog Show, a picnic for The Great Get Together, a quiz night, as well as planting and tidying events to help enhance the park. 

We have also worked along side CEO Steff in events such as 'Art in the Park', and KHWP at 'National Play Day'. We have also remained active on social media, answering general queries and promoting events. 

We now approach our 6th anniversary as FoGH, and while a key core of the original committee remain, we have welcomed contributions from various other locals. Please message us if you would like to join in, as we look towards 2018.
