Be Part of the change !

Friends of Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery and Walpole Park

Talking of trees, you may be pleased to hear that the resistograph measurements taken in July reveal that there has been no further deterioration to the Cedars of Lebanon. We are looking into putting some new cedars in the park.

We are some way through a very exciting period for the Friends as the Manor & Gallery have now been closed for over a year and some exciting discoveries have been made by the conservators. We await the full report with much anticipation!

The latest programme of Friends activities have been very successful to date and Jackie and Alexandra our events gurus are planning new exciting outings for the rest of the year even as i write this!

The outings are proving very popular so do put your name down asap if you are keen to come.

In the meantime do enjoy some of this spring sunshine by taking a turn around the Park.

Greetings Friends

exciting news! Following the Walpole Friends AGM in December, the new name for our group is Friends of Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery and Walpole Park - not catchy, but accurate!

The Friends has always supported Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery but using the name Walpole Friends was confusing and looked as if we just supported Walpole Park, whereas you may recall it was named after the Walpole Ward. We hope that this name change just clarifies what we stand for!

Some changes continue in the Park for example the 'way finding' signs are being finalised so will see some signage before too long.

We understand that the Festival in Walpole Park this year will be a week shorter - it has grown considerably over the past few years - from the point of view of the Friends its does mean that there is less damage to the Park environment.

You may have noticed that a Yew tree was taken out of the children's playground as mothers were (rightly) worried about their children eating the poisonous berries. We are also delighted to learn that here is some new equipment coming for the children's playground to fill the gap, courtesy of the contractors who had problems with the water feature element of the playground when it opened.
