Some good news! After consultation with the Council, the FOBVP committee has agreed that the time has finally come to resume our park-cleanups. It will be held on Sunday April 24th from 2 to 4pm. We will provide rubbish-pickers, hoops and bags; but please bring your own gloves (and refreshments!) if you need them. And please continue to observe social distancing. We’ll meet in our “usual” place, in the middle of the park. All are welcome. But please note that children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Members who enjoy the hands-on experience of park-cleanups may like to explore other park-related volunteering opportunities. If so, take a look at this account of some of the things the Friends do at present and look out for further announcements as we seek to extend our programme of volunteering work.
