The Friends of The Highams Park

129

The Friends of The Highams Park is a group of local volunteers who work in partnership with the London Borough of Waltham Forest’s Greenspace team.

Through this partnership, park users get a greater say in what goes on in The Highams Park and can help in improving different aspects of the park. This may take place in the form of promoting the park, helping with conservation tasks, organising local community events, fundraising and much more.

The Friends group also help to care for the park and are be involved in improving areas such as the appearance, facilities and safety.

We meet regularly to discuss improvements to the amenities of the park. The Friends also work closely with the Epping Forest authorities concerning the adjoining area around the Highams Park lake.

Recent achievements have included working with the council to arrange for new road signs at the entrances, plus the display of new History boards in the park. Also, we have helped to finance a Climbing Net in the children’s play area.
