Our Committee

The Friends of Greenhead Park is run by a committee chosen each year at our Annual General Meeting in March.   Working alongside the council and other partners, we organise events and activities, take on projects to improve the park, and look for ways to get hold of extra resources.  The committee meets monthly in the Pavilion by the bowling greens.

Our 2024 Annual General Meeting will be on Saturday 23 March at 2pm in the Greenhead Park community room. We will elect the committee for 2024/25, review progress with our priorities for 2023/24 and make plans for the coming year. We welcome new members who would like to join the committee – if you are interested in joining or would like more information, please contact us.

  • Chair: Glenis Ireland
