Trim Trail funding for Mountsfield Park

We had fantastic news yesterday from our friends at Glendale who have secured a £15,000 grant from the London Marathon Charitable Trust. Combined with the £2,000 awarded to FOMP by Rushey Green Assembly, we now have £17,000 to pay for new trim trail equipment at Mountsfield Park which will be available for adult and young adult park users. We’re really pleased that both funds have chosen to invest in our park, and also grateful to Glendale for supporting these applications.

The next step is to consult with park users about the sort of equipment they would like to see in the park, so we’ll be circulating a survey really soon.  Your views and ideas are essential and will help us to make sure the the trail is popular and well used.

Watch this space!

It’s been a beautiful day in Mountsfield Park and we had a great time at the Rushey Green Local Assembly. Lovely to talk to other community groups and to contribute to creating a community action plan for Rushey Green ward.

And we’re THRILLED to announce that Friends of Mountsfield Park has been awarded funding from the Rushey Green Assembly Fund for a community notice board. Thanks so much to everyone who voted!
