Coming up – dates for your diary!

We have two Sunday picnics planned:
3rd July & 4th September. They’re both in the park from 1-3pm, so bring along a picnic for a relaxed afternoon … and maybe the odd game of rounders!

Additional picnics could be held in August & October – but we need volunteers to host them – get in touch if you fancy helping out!


The Big Lunch community picnic will be on Sunday 12th June, 12-3pm in the park, to coincide with the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations. Bring a picnic and something to sit on.

Let’s make this our best ever Big Lunch – get in touch if you have any ideas to make the event really special or can help out on the day!
