Annual General Meeting

A report of the 2017 AGM

At the Annual General Meeting of the Friends of Alexandra Park. Kirsten Forrest and James White from the Palace team showed a selection of some of the fascinating images that emerged from the Park and Palace archives found during the restoration work in the Palace. These included pictures of the old Pavilion Tea Rooms in The Grove, the old Boat House and pictures from inside the Palace.

The first part of the archives has been uploaded to Google Arts and Culture and can be found here.

They also asked if any of the Friends of Park were interested in doing research into Gardening in the Park......

In addition Mark Evison, the Park Manager, gave us an update on the park and illustrated some of his work (dealing with licencees, coping with the litter, tree vulnerabilities and management). New positive achievements included large numbers of awards for the Park (Green Flag, London in Bloom etc.) and the new surface to the Lower Road. 

The Friends’ chairman, Gordon Hutchinson, gave a report (read it here) on the activities of the members and a plea for additional help to do yet more.

Concern was raised over the Wood Green Area Action Plan and how it could affect the Park.

The Committee was re-elected, but if you wish to join us you will be very welcome. Contact us or come along and meet us when the Information Centre is open.
