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.

Community in the Park 2017 – Get involved!!

Last year we worked with Elder Park Housing Association, Aberlour Youth Point, and Glasgow Sport  to bring together a family fun & music event in Elder Park. Community in the Park celebrated the diversity, creativity, and general fabulousness that is Govan! We were funded to deliver this by Glasgow City Council.

We’re looking forward to holding this event again on September 23rd  October 14th 2017, and we’d love to get YOU involved! Please get in touch if you;

  • have any ideas about what sort of activities we could offer at this event
  • 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

Friends of Elder Park are coordinating this event on an entirely voluntary basis – but if we can source funding to support other 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…then we certainly wouldn’t say no!
