The Friends of Wandsworth Park (FoWP) AGM is on 3 September 2, 7.00pm (bar opens 6.30pm) at the Hurlingham Yacht Club, 43A Deodar Road, Putney SW15 2NP.

There is a special presentation planned for this year. The FOWP want to engage their members and friends to discuss what they would like to see done to make Wandsworth Park better than it already is. FoWP want the input of the local community and concluded there’s no better time than an AGM.

The FoWP are seeking nominations for the election of Officers and Committee Members. The proposal is to continue with the same 4 Officers and 5 Committee Members for another year. In addition, FoWP would also welcome up to 3 nominations for co-opted members. All nominations must be supported by a proposer and seconder and have the written consent of the proposed nominee. Please email any nominations for the attention of the Secretary to:

All nominations must be received by 19 Augusth. Only members will be able to vote for Officers and Committee Members.

Those that are not members, FoWP hope you will come along and join the Friends and existing Members, they look forward to seeing you.

The chair Pat Gross said: "Please come to hear about all the good things that we have achieved over the past year and share our hopes and aspirations for the coming year with much excitement and anticipation".

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least two articles a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
