Schools Poster Competition

This competition has now closed - see main News for December.

ALL 4 AWL new


Forty-eight posters have been submitted by primary school children for the Friends of Eastfield Park's 'Away With Litter' Schools Poster Competition. Sadly, the secondary schools invited to take part in the competition did not submit any entries. Northampton College was hit by staffing problems (due to illness) during the last few weeks of the autumn term and asked for, and was granted, extra time to submit posters. This does not put the primary schools at any disadvantage since the college students are taking part in what is essentially a separate competition.

It is now hoped that judging will take place towards the end of January and that a selection of posters, including the winners, will be on display at Broadmead Baptist Church during the late afternoon and early evening of 18th February, the day of the FoEP AGM.

Work on the Eastfield Park Website

Meanwhile the Friends of Eastfield Park have been working on our sister website (www.eastfieldpark.eastfieldward.co.uk) that includes information about the park itself - its location, physical character, history, wildlife, etc.

All of our sites (and many others) function better when using Google Chrome or Firefox as a browser and this is particularly true for the maps embedded in the park website. The maps usually appear on Internet Explorer but their alignments seem to be altered at least on some computers. We strongly recommend using Google Chrome or Firefox.

Carols in the Park

Just over twenty adults and children from Broadmead Baptist Church, St. Alban's Church and Friends of Eastfield Park, joined together to sing carols in the park on 17th December. We sang at the MUGA, two places along Greenside and then outside Eleonore House where we also enjoyed mulled wine together (alcoholic or non-alcoholic according to preference). It was only at Eleonore House that anybody came outside to listen but a few curtains were pulled back slightly along the route. Perhaps people thought we were after their money! That was not the reason for singing - we wanted to give something to the community not get something from them.
