On May 18th & 19th 2013 we staged a special community weekend to celebrate the Centenary of Grovelands Park. The event was a huge success, getting nominated for a national award. Almost 20,000 visitors enjoyed the music, food, exhibitions and parade made possible by a Priority Grant from LBE and the contributions of numerous volunteers supporting the organising team to mark 100 years of our park.
Footage of the Celebration will be added at a later date
Award Nominated Event
Although organised by a tight team of FOGP volunteers the Centenary Celebrations were so successful that they made a shortlist for the february 2014 EVENT PRODUCTION AWARDS being presented at a gala dinner at the Event Show Exhibition at Earls Court, a remarkable achievement and honour for all the volunteers involved.
The Birthday Party is over. The huge stages, marquees, equipment, stalls and vehicles have all been cleared and our treasured park was restored to the natural state we all love, like it had all been a dream. We are left with our memoires of those special days but what memories.
