Overview of the Friends of Headstone Manor Park

 

Welcome to the Friends of Headstone Manor Park (FoHMP).

 

Our aim is to improve the use of Headstone Manor Park through events, activities, advocacy and environmental improvement.

  2. Work collaboratively to involve local people, organisations and institutions in improving the Park.

  3. Carry out and promote both environmental improvements and practical conservation in the Park.

 

Brief History of the Friends of Headstone Manor Park

 

  • The friends group started in early 2016 following several informal meetings in the park of local residents. These meetings coincided with Harrow Councils consultations with regards to the provision of borough services. 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 2016 and was well supported by local residents and the following items were 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.

  • The Friends of Headstone Manor Park has strong council support and has advocated for local residents from different socio-economic and culturally diverse backgrounds to get involved in running events and activities in the park.

  • The Park underwent a major transformation as part of a National Heritage Lottery Funded which was completed in September 2021 this resulted in us being able to achieve Green Flag Status at our first attempt in 2022. 

  • The Park retained its Green Flag Status in 2023.

  •  The Park achieved the BALI National Landscape Award in 2023 for Nature Conservation & Biodiversity Enhancement 

Headstone Manor Park is 23 hectares (57 acres) located in Harrow in North-West London.
