Below you’ll see the events planned, so far, and we hope they whet your appetite to get outdoors in the Park!
Spring has sprung and so have loads of brambles around the Park! Meet on the Dothill path near the nature reserve entrance gate…
Get off that computer and get outside!
There are 2000 free bulbs to plant in our lovely Park, come and join in for an hour or two.
We will meet at 2pm in the middle of the woods by the large fallen oak tree. Hope to see you there!
The Management Committee
You are invited to our AGM to be held in Shrewsbury House. If you have recently joined this is an excellent chance to find out what the Friends do and how you can be active.
- The meeting will include Chair’s report of FSP activities followed by election of Management Committee members and issues raised by members.
- Featured talk will be by Dai Jones, Manager of Woodlands Farm.
- The new 2017 calendar will be on sale at £5, proceeds going to the drinking fountain fund.
See you there!
In September we offered an evening Bat Walk and an afternoon Time Walk to showcase different aspects of Shrewsbury Park.
This year’s Time Walk will show you how Shrewsbury Park developed, and how it fits into the wider landscape of Shooters Hill.
Join John Denton, a woods-wise FSP member, as he leads us on an hour’s walk through the Park; identifying trees by leaf/fruit/bark, finding the height of trees, calculating their ages, making bark and leaf rubbings AND tree beating!
Correct meeting place is by the notice board in Plum Lane carpark . Wear sturdy shoes. Route will be off and on the paths, so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to help us accommodate mobility issues.
Members free, others £2 (but free if you join the Friends)
Thank you all for turning out for the weekend of fun, despite the drizzles. With your help we raised over £500 which will go towards our drinking fountain fund.
It was great to have the Bella Voce Social Club, Jazz NIghts and the Greenwich Morris dancers at our Saturday event, a huge thank you to them for allowing the show to go on during the rain!
Meet at the crossroad of Dothill and the Green Chain walk from 11am -12 noon for ‘Bramble bashing’ and initiating the new hedge trimmer. Bring your own gloves, secateurs and loppers to help reclaim the circular path through the Nature Reserve.
