Parksfest Pop Up Sunday 1st August 1-4pm

Some of the lovely Friends team will be in the park this Sunday to share some of the things we couldn’t do on the 25th July.

Come and find out about the art competition, share a park memory, collect a craft pack, join the Friends team or find out more about the fundraising and all our other activities. Do come and say hello and talk to us about ponds, tree planting, playgrounds or anything else about the park.

‘The Friends of Eaglesfield Park will be running a pop-up stall in the park on Sunday 1 August, 1 – 4 pm; Sunday 8 August, 10 am – 1 pm; and Saturday 14 August, 1 – 4 pm. We’ll be asking people visiting the park to share their thoughts, feelings, memories or perhaps a short poem about the park and what it means to them by writing or drawing on coloured paper leaves to hang on our ‘Park for all Times’ branches. The leaves will be used to make bunting for the Eaglesfield Parksfest event on Sunday September 5th 1-4pm. Children’s modelling starter bags will be given to the first 50 children so they can make a model whilst they’re there or over the holidays inspired by the park or playground to bring and show on the 5th September and also have the chance to win one of three art material prizes. We’ll be encouraging everyone coming to the stalls to send us their photographs of the park, art work or writing about the park to be shared on our website with a selection being displayed at the September event. Free lavender bags will be given to everyone signing up to become a member of the Friends Group at the sessions.’

You can send competition entries to [email protected], paintings, drawings, poems, stories all welcome till August 22nd.
