Friends Group Meeting 20 April at 7pm

You may remember that in our March update I noted that there will be a Friends Meeting on Wednesday 20 April 2022 at 7pm at Studio Flox, Ground Floor, Watermans Park Building (access from Smith Hill or Watermans Arts Centre car park).

Although this won’t be an AGM – I didn’t give enough notice – it will be a good opportunity to share your views about the park and how you would like to get involved.

The park is proving to be hugely popular since re-opening but here are several important features of the re-design that have yet to be completed. I hope by the time of the meeting we’ll be able to provide a substantive update. And share what we know about the Phase I construction of the moorings.

We also have some ideas to promote the use of the park and its facilities over the summer including activities for children (painting bird and bat boxes, insect hotels, book depository), free open mic events to promote local musicians on weekend afternoons, participate in the Creative Mile 2022 and provide a cup of tea and a slice of cake.

I hope you’ll be able to join us for an hour or so on Wednesday at 7pm.
