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.

Can you fill in a short 3 minute survey and let the park know your views?

Sunday 6 August - 11am-3pm

Our next planned day to help maintain this precious space for wildlife. If you can lend a hand weeding, mulching and generally tidying the area, come along and help out. You don't have to stay for the whole 4 hours, just as much time as you can spare. Gloves and tools provided.
The wildlife area is near the Playground, situated behind East Lodge which is by the main gate on Upton Lane.
Future events will be held approximately every 6 weeks throughout the year - put Sunday 29 October in your diaries now, and we'll update with extra dates when they have been confirmed.

Will the bats come out for us this year? Come along and see! Details to follow.
