Recently the Friends of Kings Heath Park did a survey. Top of the list came playground equipment.
We have good news. A very very kind individual has donated a large amount of money to us which had enabled us to purchase some equipment for Kings Heath Park.
The money has now been transferred to the council who are now taking the playground equipment project forward. As soon as we get updates we will keep you posted.

We have had a busy weekend. Firstly a big thank you to all who came and helped on the Pool last Saturday. The work is really beginning to make a difference. Secondly thank you to all who came to our ‘Friends Group Community Meeting’ on Sunday. There was some really good ideas discussed which I am sure will come to fruition in the very near future.

Well we have started the work on the Pool in Kings Heath Park. Yesterday nine people turned up and really mucked in. We removed the large branch from the middle of the Pool and started work along one side of the embankment. We also cleared a lot of debris from the Pool itself. The next Pool day is this Saturday 14th October 1030 x 1430hrs meeting outside the Rangers office. If we can make the same progress as we made yesterday, there will be a significant improvements to the Pool in the next few months. We will be posting further dates very soon. Thank you all. Brilliant team work.

Our Litter Pick on Sunday 1st October was well attended.
We had 20 volunteers turn up for our first event. Amazing.
So many bags of litter were brought back including needles, a vacuum found in the trees,
a rusty scooter and a beanbag. Thank you to all the volunteers.
