Welcome to the Friends of Rowntree Park!
The Friends of Rowntree Park is a charity which seeks to promote the well-being of the Park and its users. The Friends work to support increased and diverse uses of the park, by all sections of the community. The Friends are consulted by the council on developments and changes within the park and suggest improvements ourselves. We do not manage the park overall, but we do work very closely with council staff (including the Environment and Community Officers). We also run our own activities, which currently include events for our Younger Friends and a volunteer gardeners group (for information firstname.lastname@example.org).
Previous projects are many and have included the Ark in the Park, ParkActive, oral history project, the Lost Words Poetry Project and many more.
We have regular Friends’ meetings which include Council staff.
Help us in our work to keep Rowntree Park beautiful and thriving, by joining the Friends of Rowntree Park. Membership is available for a small annual subscription of £5 per household. You can pay online, via our Membership page or pick up a leaflet, from the Reading Cafe.
As a member, we will send you our updates and newsletters, preferably by email (to save money and trees), or alternatively by post. This will keep you up to date with all developments and activities in the park, and as a Friend, you are part of a local community group that can affect what will happen in your park. Your membership also offers 10% discount on food and drink, at the Reading Cafe, when you produce your membership card. We offer gift memberships for the same price, or a 10-year membership (so you don’t have to remember your subscriptions each year!) for a bargain £40. For any membership queries, contact us on email@example.com
