AGM: 4th March, 6PM

All are welcome to come along to Friends of Elder Park’s AGM on Wednesday 4th March, 6 – 7.30pm in Elder Park Library. Come along for a chat and a cuppa, vote in the new committee, and catch up on all things Elder Park.

As ever, we very much welcome the addition of new members on the committee so please consider this before you come along. You can read a little about what this entails HERE. We look forward to seeing you there!

Community in the Park 2018!

We’re looking forward to holding this event again on September 15th. You can check out photos from our previous events here. It’s a very special afternoon for us because we’ll be celebrating Friends of Elder Park’s 10th Birthday, so why not let us know you are coming along to help us party on our facebook event page.

With less than a month to go we’ve got a lot to do! So, we’d love to hear from you if you;

  • would like to get involved in planning or running the event
  • are a local performer – musician, poet, dancer…. football tricks…what’s your skill?
  • are part of a local group or organisation who would like to contribute an activity to a completely free community event
  • are 18-25 and would like to help steward the event – for which you would receive expenses.

Friends of Elder Park are coordinating this event on an entirely voluntary basis (and with a teeny tiny budget, but if we can support other small groups and individuals within the community to get involved then we’d love to! So if your idea would need a little bit of financial support to make it possible then please let us know. Equally, if there’s something you can offer for free – whether that’s your time,  talent, or…. a gazebo/ fold-up table/ chairs etc…then we certainly wouldn’t say no! We just want to make sure this is a fantastic, fun, and completely free event for the people of Govan.
