August 2013 ....


Picnic in the Park 2013 (2)

On Thursday 29th August several families enjoyed a picnic in Eastfield Park organised by the Headland's Childrens Centre and the FoEP. Activities included looking at creatures found in the Park's ponds and an acrostic puzzle based on animals that live in the Park.

The prizes for completing the acrostic were chocolate Easter eggs left over from the FoEP's (rather cold) Easter event. We are pleased to say that the weather was much warmer for the picnic!!

We hope to be organising more joint events in the future.

Proposed route of footpath

The Friends of Eastfield Park have been campaigning for all-weather footpaths across Eastfield Park for several years now. We are therefore delighted to announce that Northampton Borough Council has at last given us a specific proposal for a path connecting Eastfield and Lakeview. The proposed route will link Skiddaw Walk with Greenside (between Newby Court and Lodore Gardens) and will pass along the western shore of the lake (see map above).

NBC and FoEP are keen to have your views about this proposal and a paper questionnaire will be delivered to houses in the immediate vicinity of the proposed path on Tuesday 3rd September 2013. Copies will also be available at the Lakeview Residents Association meeting on Thursday 5th September (Eden Close Community Room @ 7.00pm) and at the St Alban's Drop-in on Friday 6th September (St Albans Church, 9.30am - 12.00noon).

You can also let us have your views on-line by following the following link to a consultation on 'surveymonkey':

NB! The consultation period ends on 16th September, 2013.
