As another year ends and a new one begins, it is natural to reflect both backwards and forwards. FoLM would like to thank everyone for their participation and support over the past 12 months – be it helping with events, attending our events or gardening to improve our lovely park. We hope that residents have noticed and enjoyed our efforts and we are looking forward to continuing our successful event programme in 2017.
On the subject of events, we very much hope you will accept our invitation to join us for Carols in the Park by the boathouse on Saturday 17th December from 4pm. There will be free refreshments as usual, bolstered by a generous donation from the Waitrose Community Fund!
We have several projects in the pipeline for 2017 and if anyone has any ideas or help they could offer, please do contact us.
A quick reminder that if you shop at the Co-op we would appreciate it if you could register with them and nominate us as your chosen local charity. Remember you will receive 5% back yourself on all own-brand products purchased as well as supporting us.
After the success of our 2016 Photographic Competition we will be launching the 2017 Competition in January. Whilst we are cautious about wishing for snowy weather we recognise that it does afford some fantastic photo opportunities in the park!
