Friends of Manor Park AGM + Park Design Showcase

7pm-9pm, Monday, 22nd July, Shiraz Mirza Hall, Manor Park

This is our big official meeting of the year open to members and the general public alike. The Friends committee will be reporting back to you on how this last year has has gone, and how our future plans are shaping up, which is where things get exciting…..

….as you know, our big project at the moment is Revivify Manor Park. We met in the hall a few weeks ago at a workshop managed by our landscape architects, Outerspace, to get the views of local residents about how they’d like to see the park develop. They have also run a survey, approached numerous stakeholders, and even involved local schools in design workshops. As a result of all this we believe we’ve got a good indication from the local community how you’d like to see the park develop. At the AGM Outerspace will be presenting freshly drawn-up landscape plans our park. This showcase will takeover the second half of the meeting – and should be an engaging session, with the emphasis on getting your feedback.

The first part of the meeting will deal with official matters, which include our annual report, and the election of committee members and officers. We are constituted to run this election process once every two years. If you’d like to stand for election as a committee member or a committee member plus officer post please get in contact with us at team@ourmanorpark.org.uk  (Please not that the committee has the following officer roles: Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer. All these roles will be voted on.)
