Meade Park friends news in October

October was a busy month for the Friends of Meade Park group with the official formation of a committee and a new picnic bench being installed in the park.

On Tuesday 16th October, the Friends group held a meeting at Little Stoke Youth and Community Centre where a new and functioning committee was set up and terms of reference adopted. Jenny James, who revived the group, said:

“At the meeting, it was acknowledged that the Friends of Meade Park would continue to work collaboratively with Stoke Gifford Parish Council  and local businesses, particularly with their community champions, and Friends of Forty Acres. Once a bank account is established by the committee, we are planning to go for grant funding applications.”

The Friends of Meade Park are also hoping to start tree walks around the park after Christmas for those who are interested in finding out more about what grows in and around the park. If you would like to join one of these walks, look out for more information on their Facebook and Twitter pages.

In other news, the Friends of Meade Park were pleased to see that a new picnic bench has been placed in the park by the parish council, some work has been completed on the path at the back of the park and some new walnut trees have been planted. Jenny said:

“We would like to thank the members of the parish council for their continued support.”

If you would like to join the Friends of Meade Park committee or would just like to find out more about their future plans, email Jenny on
