 Friends of Eaglesfield Park formed after public meeting of local community.  Committee established and Constitution agreed.  Following further consultation, local community identified restoration of the lily pond to be its main priority.

A Consortium of Friends of Eaglesfield Park (FOEP), the Royal Borough of Greenwich Parks and Open Spaces, UK Environmental and Wildlife Charities, Groundwork UK and Froglife was formed.   FOEP secured £50,000 from the Community Spaces Programme (part of the Big Lottery Fund’s Changing Spaces initiative) plus additional funding from the Royal Borough of Greenwich to restore the old Lily Pond and make other improvements to Eaglesfield Park.
