2009 November : New play equipment is now in place & in use !
There is a mixture of new equipment for all age ranges including climbing frames, balance boards, springers & even a “Zip wire” !
The different types of equipment were chosen to meet the requirements identified by the survey carried out by the Council late last year / early this year & should keep everyone happy with something challenging / exciting.
Approximately half the cost of the new equipment has come from Friends of Knowle Park – ie you ! The remainder has been provided by Solihull MBC.
We raised the money via proceeds of the annual Knowle Park Festival & donations – including a generous donation from Knowle & Dorridge Lions.
Please have a look, inform your children, friends & neighbours ! We hope everyone enjoys it, feels proud of their achievement & looks after it.
If you have any comments / feedback about the equipment, please let us know & we will pass on the info to the Council
2009 - July : High School Musical & Blues Brothers Tributes Party in the Park was Saturday July 11th. Unfortunately the weather was not ideal, but an amazing no. of people turned out, with some hiding under their own gazebos while everybody else braved the elements !
2009 - June : The
Park Festival took place on Saturday 20th June. The weather was much kinder
than previous years & we believe everybody who came had a great day out. There
seemed to be many more people attending than previous years.
From feedback we've received, many of the local charities attending had a very successful day - raising funds, generating new members & / or further interest in their activities.
Funds generated by the FoKP activities towards the Children's Play Area Upgrade Appeal exceeded last years total of £3,200. We'll publish the final amount when we've finalised all of the invoices etc.
Photos of the event will be uploaded shortly - so everybody who didn't attend can see what a good event they missed !
We'll also be publishing a list of all of the local business's who contributed to the fundraising this year. Please reward their investment in the local community with your custom !
2009 - March : See the Events section for details of this years planned activities. Please put this year's Festival date in your diary & tell your friends & neighbours !
2009 - January : Happy New Year to all our members & Park users !
