February 2013 ....


The Friends of Eastfield Park's Annual General Meeting took place at Broadmead Baptist Church on Monday, 18th February, 2013. Preceding the AGM, Mr Michael Ellis, MP for Northampton North, gave an informative public talk entitled "Localism and Planning: Is local democracy really working". Following this, Mr Ellis answered questions from the audience on a wide range of topics.

During a break for refreshments those attending had the opportunity to view a display of the posters entered in the FoEP's 'Away With Litter' anti-litter poster competition for local schools and Northampton College. Another display described many of the FoEP's achievements during 2012.

The AGM itself was deliberately kept short, the relevant papers all having been circulated electronically well before the meeting. Before giving the Annual Report for 2012, the Chair pointed out that a report about the public consultation carried out during 2012 was now available. That report (along with the Chair's Annual Report and the FoEP's recently approved Data Protection Policy) is available from the 'Downloads' page of this website.

All the previous committee members were re-elected for another year with the exception of Sheron Watson who wished not to stand for re-election. Linda Martin was elected back on to the committee after a year's break and Cllr Matthew Lynch was elected for the first time.

Thank you, Sheron, for all your work for the FoEP in recent years and welcome, Matthew, and welcome back, Linda, to the FoEP committee.

Last month we published the name of the primary school winner in the FoEP's 'Away With Litter' poster competition. This month we are delighted to annonce that Monika Zwolanowska has won the Northampton College prize. Monika, who designed the poster pictured left, will receive a voucher for £50. Tyras Colquhoune and Guangjian Chen will each receive consolation prizes of vouchers worth £20.

Easter @ Eastfield


Our plans for Easter @ Eastfield 2013 are progressing well. As usual, there will be an Easter Trail for older children that will involve them visiting various locations within the park and answering questions. There will also be an egg hunt for younger children where they will have to count how many coloured eggs are 'hidden' around the 'Eastfield Monster'.

Poster 2013

Other activities should include children's games, face-painting and a tombola. Members of the Phoenix Wheelchair Basket Ball Club will be present and are expected to demonstrate some of their skill.

This year any donations given on the day will go to the Phoenix WBC.
