The Benefits of Park User Groups – information from the National Federation of Parks and Green Spaces

Friends of Forster Memorial Park, (FoFMP for short!) is a park user group

Formed in November 2016, we’re a local group of volunteers, made-up of park-users, like you.

Our focus:

  • to ensure this green space receives the TLC  it deserves
  • to make it even better

Improvements cost money

 In the last four years, we’ve successfully obtained funding from:

  • Phoenix Housing Association
  • Whitefoot Assembly
  • Lewisham Greening Fund
  • Co-op Local Community Fund
  • Sevenfields Primary Care Network

Spending it wisely

Here are some of the improvements we’ve made:

  • An outside classroom for Forest School
  • A table tennis table and cricket surface
  • Additional seating outside the park cafe
  • New nature  and wildlife signs throughout the park
