NEW COMMITTEE MEMBERS NEEDED FOR 2009
We are urgently looking for new committee members to help run and organise the Friends next year. The AGM will be held in April and both Pete our chair and Hilda our treasurer will be stepping down from their committee roles after three years in their committee officer roles. We need Friends to come forward and volunteer to help run the group.
Without the committee the Friends of Park Wood would not be able to go on. The committee organises the work days, looks after the tools and promotes the values of Park Wood to local residents. Most years the committee meets 4 - 6 times to plan work days and any events that the Friends are holding. Without a committee we would have to fold up the Friends Group and stop our work days, which at the moment is the main care that the wood gets. To find out more about the committee what it involves please contact 023 9226 6418.

Work Days

Thank you to all those who came out for the June Work Day, especially the Scouts and their parents who came to help us.  

The next Work Day will be Sunday 28th July, which will include a Teddy Bears Picnic (see below).   The work day will begin at 10 am and as usual, light refreshments, gloves and all tools will be provided, but please remember to wear suitable footwear. 

Future Events
