The weather looks reasonable for Saturday so you have another chance to buy these beautiful calendars in the open air. Still only £5 each, in aid of the drinking fountain fund.
This week you will find the calendar table at the top end of Dothill Road where it opens out onto the slope to Rowton Road. And please note the hours are 10am to 2pm.
See you there unless it’s pouring with rain.
Come and get your fabulous Shrewsbury Park calendars – treat yourself and stock up for Christmas presents! All profits go to the drinking fountain fund.
There will be a table staffed by smiley committee members by the notice board next to the Plum Lane carpark starting at 8.30 am. So bring your cash along with your dogs and be first in line!
If it’s raining we will reschedule, so watch this space…
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!
Congratulations to Andy King for having taken the most popular Park photo in the competition! We had fifty-two entries, that’s fifty-two different and imaginative ways of looking at Shrewsbury Park. Thank you everyone who entered, and everyone who voted at the Summer Festival.
It’s time to get snapping for the FSP Photographic Competition, if you haven’t already. Get out in the Park and capture your images of the views, the trees, the creatures, the park users. We need them all for judging at the Summer Festival on 11 June and the winning results will feature in the FSP Calendar 2017. The overall winner gets the cover position. All proceeds from calendar sales go towards our Drinking Water Fountain Fund.
Send your photo files – jpegs please, with minimum resolution of 2 megapixels – to firstname.lastname@example.org with the words ‘photo comp’ as the subject. We will confirm receipt of photos and give information regarding display prints to be used for the Festival exhibition.
Who’s in charge? – Michelle Smith That’s the caption for the cheery robin above who was the overall winner of our summer photographic competition, resulting in the 2016 FSP Calendar. Photos were taken by members, then displayed and voted on by all-comers at the Summer Festival 28 June 2015. The other twelve most popular entries follow below.
Unfortunately the calendars sold out quickly, at £5 each, which did give the Park drinking fountain fund a healthy boost.
Thank you to everyone who participated. Get out there NOW and start capturing all the seasonal wonders of the Park for entry into the 2016 competition!
