There is a draft Constitution (revised August 2009) – see below:

Constitution (draft)


The next Friends of Russell Park AGM will be held on 17.8.14 at 4.30pm in Russell Park by the kiosk at Maurice Avenue entrance.

Please find attached agenda amended to take account of the AGM (and a few additional items) and amended constitution with proposed amendments in track changes. The changes merely clarify the original constitution which was drafted before most of us moved here.

It will be a good meeting, there is now more life in the park because of more activities held in the park so do come along!

This is a community blogsite maintained by volunteers. There are some advertisements posted by WordPress in return for the free blog service we use. NPNARA does not promote any advertising and the posting of the advertisements should not be seen as an indication of support or endorsement by our organisation.

There is still, however, a big drive to make the park more community-friendly and really one of the hubs of the community, especially amongst the current cuts to parks across the borough. The Friends of Russell Park group meets once every 2-3 months to discuss issues regarding the park. If are passionate about your community in Noel Park and want to see the park flourish and provide fun for as many people as possible, contact the FORP group for more information of how to get involved.
