Working Party in the Park, 30 March 2019
A group of FoSP supporters spent a sunny  Saturday afternoon cutting back suckers and undergrowth around the lime trees near the Cheney Lane pedestrian gate. This work improved the light and visibility in this part of the park and will help make the area safer for park users.

FoSP supporters spent Sunday morning clearing up after the Saturday night Round Table fireworks. Several teams of volunteers came to help, which meant that we had the litter cleared by mid-morning. Well done everyone!

Working Party in the Park, November 2017
In November FoSP held a working party to clear ivy, brushwood and undergrowth from the railings along the Warneford Lane side of the park and down the fences behind Morrell Avenue houses. A team of over a dozen volunteers spent a very enjoyable afternoon working together and not only did we make a fantastic difference to the park, we also recruited several new members. Well done everyone!

The Saturday evening fireworks this year were better than ever, enjoyed by thousands and raising funds for local good causesThe annual Sunday morning post-fireworks clear-up took place with the sun shining on us as usual! FoSP volunteers were assisted by Brookes students and the scouts, and with many helping hands the park was returned to its normal beautiful condition in a remarkably short time – thanks to all who joined us in assisting the Round Table in this necessary task.


Before – litter everywhere…
