Many thanks to everyone who came along to Devonshire Road Park for family fun last Monday

We had arts and crafts on the bus, Active Soccer, forest schools fun (when we finally unlocked the cab of the bus and managed to get the equipment out!)

and Southbank Tennis Club arrived (slightly late because the coach, Ben, ended up at Pleasureland!) to do some tennis with the families as well

The rain stayed away and we even saw some sunshine – thank you to everyone for all your support!

We Need Your Help!

Days-Gone-By Pictures and Stories

We are hoping to do a days-gone-by-page on our High Park project website and we are looking for any pictures and stories about High Park in days gone by.
Any black and white pictures would be fantastic – I can copy them and let you have them back

I would any information about the area and how it used to be either pre or post war.

Any help would be fantastic,
Thank you!
