The Friends of West Ham Park are a group of local residents who love and use the park regularly.  We wanted to find ways to be more involved in the park's present activities and help the park management in the development of its future role in our community. 

  Keep up to date on what we're up to on our Facebook page

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic, future events the Friends Group were planning may be subject to change or cancellation, possibly at short notice.
We hope you all stay safe and well during these difficult times.


Dear Friends,
The current epidemic has changed our lives so much recently. This is true for the Friends of West Ham Park as much as anybody. Our role is to get people to come together and enjoy and support the park, just the opposite in may ways to the current government guidelines. However, we are still here and once the current restrictions are eased we’ll be wanting to to re-start many of our activities. In the meantime we thought we would put together a newsletter about the park. I hope you enjoy reading it and look forward to meeting up again in the near future at one of our events.
Keep safe,
Roger Jones,
Chair. Friends of West Ham Park
