Sutton Parks and Lockdown Poetry Competition

We are looking for the best poem on the theme of parks and lockdown.

During lockdown, parks have provided a space to breathe, an escape from our four walls, helping to restore our mental and physical health. 

Many people have a new found love for their local greenspace, others appreciate parks more than ever.

Poetry prize competition

  • A prize for the winner in each category of a £50 book token:
    • Under 12 years old

    • Adults 18+ years old
  • One entry per person

Closing date for entries: 31st December 2020

Entries should be emailed to dawn.fielding@sutton.gov.uk

Happy New Year 2019 to all members and park users. In the past our park has been invaded by “ Travellers” who last time left an awful mess behind putting park users and dog walkers at risk to injury which the Council has to clear up at tax payers expense. We are pleased to advise that Sutton Council has now taken action with The High Court of Justice to obtain a permanent ban on Travellers misusing the park. Click here to view document


IMPORTANT NOTICE - Apologies but we had to cancel the Friends AGM 2018 planned for 31st July 2018 due to the sudden illness of the Chairman. This has been subsequently reorganized to be dealt with by the Friends Management Committee on the 14th November 2018. For a full report please see AGM Report
