It was therefore felt that a viable friends group for the park in advance of the proposed redevelopment bid was an important and necessary step
The first formal meeting was held in April 2014 and was well supported by local residents and the following items where discussed, what the friends group would look like, who it would represent, what it could do and how it might represent the desires and opinions of park users.
The Friends group was formally incorporated following this meeting and constitution formatted and approved by Harrow Council and the Friends committee in April 2016.
