About Us

For further details about joining the Friends of Chapeltown Park contact Doris Denton at roydoris@sky.com.  We hold meetings on the 4th Wednesday of alternate months – at 7pm.

 

Friends of Chapeltown Park were formed in 2003 and have been a registered charity since January 2007,  registered Charity Number 1118921.  We try to improve the facilities in Chapeltown Park and managed to raise a big part of the funding for our super natural playground for younger children which was installed in 2011.

 

We have recently obtained funding for a new Outdoor Gym and a Wildflower Meadow in Chapeltown Park and working hard to fundraise for the next part of the project which is equipment for teenagers.

 

We also put on monthly free events in the park including an annual Gala.    Our Gala next year will be held on Saturday 8th July 2017 from 11a.m. to 3p.m.   We have obtained some funding from the Big Lottery Celebrate to put on free attractions to make this popular event even better.

 

Due to the fact that Angram Bank in High Green has obtained a new skatepark, we have decided to put our fundraising for this on hold.   Have decided instead to fund a large “Big 6 Swing” which will be installed on the site of the old playground and hope that this will be something for our older children to enjoy.   Hopefully it will be ready May/June 2017.
