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.
