News / Happy New Year : A date to look forward to

In these bleak Covid blighted  times the Friends of Grovelands Park are pleased to have a date for your diaries with something positive to look forward to.

To celebrate the Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen the Friends of Grovelands Park invite you all to a Platinum Picnic In The Park on Saturday June 4th 2022, when there will be an historic Exhibition, the planting of a Jubilee Oak Tree, an homage to the Royalty Ballroom, so people can dance in the styles of 1952 as well as retro children’s games and other activities.

Days like this can only happen with the support of volunteers but it is hoped that residents will get involved with this community event and join the Friends of Grovelands Park to help organise supporting attractions such as a Coronation themed pageant for school children, Photographic exhibitions, Dog Events and any other appropriate features that will make this a memorable and historic family day. The Friends of Grovelands Park will underwrite the infrastructure costs of this event using funds generated by the successful Centenary Celebrations in 2013, the last significant historic date for the park but other sources of funding and donations are being sought to make this a very special day to remember (June 4th2022)
