Park Walkabout is a Great Success

The Friends of Grangewood Park got off to a great start on Saturday 27 March with many people attending a walkabout of the park led by Meike Weiser, Community Partnership Officer from Croydon Parks Dept. People were able to meet the Friends Group Officers and Committee members and learn more about how the group works and ways to get involved.

Over twenty people signed up to receive further information and concerns were expressed about littering, fly tipping and safety in the park. Meike explained the benefits of an active friends group which works with the council’s support to resolve such issues.

It was wonderful to see how much everyone, old and young, valued their local park and to mark the beginning of the Friends of Grangewood Park.
