2021 and COVID-19

Our new 2021calendar of events are already being drastically impacted by the third National Lockdown of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.

New dates for Members Meetings and Voluntary Work Parties will be posted here as soon as we can plan dates moving forward. Please keep checking back for updates.


2021 Voluntary Work in The Park

“Friends of Astley Park (FoAP) will be doing voluntary work in the Park on the following dates throughout the year.

Start times are 9.30am on both Saturdays and Mondays.

Emails will be sent out to members in the run-up to each event stating where we meet and what work is on the agenda. On very rare occasions the work may be cancelled at the last minute due to adverse weather etc., in this case again emails will be sent out to members.

If you would like to come along and help us please do so, you will be most welcome. Contact us for meeting points on that particular date.

The dates are as follows:-

CANCELLED UNTIL COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS ALLOW

Activities in March / April will include work preparing and planting.

Activities in April/May will include the Sensory Garden, litter picking and any other activity, which will not disturb nesting birds.

On the dates in July/August we will concentrate on Balsam Bashing.

On other dates we will work in the main on improving the river. Those not wanting to take part in this activity can either litter pick or help in the Sensory Garden.


At the present time we are not able to advise when indoor meetings such as members’ meetings or Quiz night will be able to be resumed.
