What we do: Conservation ....

Perhaps this is what Friends of Eastfield Park (FoEP) is best known for within the local community; it is certainly one of our most visible activities.

In practice, our practical work goes well beyond simply ‘tidying up’ and we are increasingly involved in restoration and conservation. Our excavation of the stone steps dating back to the days of the Manfield Estate, but which had become almost completely covered with soil, is a good example of restoration work. The construction of ‘log walls’ in October 2009 and October 2011 is a good example of our conservation activities.

Autumn 'Tidy-up' 2009

Working together (web)

We have organised ‘Spring Cleans’ and ‘Autumn Tidy-ups’ on a regular basis since March, 2007, and it is hoped that Park users will have noticed improvements resulting from our activities. Reports of our most recent activities are available on our 'Downloads' page.

We hope that our actions not only improve the Park but also help to bring together different parts of the community in social (and sociable!) action. However, the number of local volunteers has fallen off since we started in 2007 and, although this has partly been compensated for by groups of volunteers from Groundwork Northamptonshire, Barclaycard and the WNDC, we hope that we can encourage more local residents to get involved in our work.
