Sir Joe’s Party in the Park

There will be fun and games on 8th July in the Sir Joseph Hood Memorial Playing Fields at Motspur Park when The Friends put on a great Party in the Park to raise funds for its upkeep.  Between 12.00 and 3.00 p.m. there will be boot camps and trainers; nature walks; football; tennis and a kids and adults yoga class.  There will also be a BBQ, bouncy castles, face painting stalls and refreshments and much more – even sports massages for those in need.  Go along and have lots of fun.  

Meanwhile, how long have you known and used the Playing fields?

The Friends of Sir Joseph Hood Memorial Playing Field are looking to put together a history of our park. We are particularly looking for memories and photographs from the 1930s onwards including:

  • Sports Activities
  • The Pavilion
  • Changes after WWII
  • The Bowls Club

We can make a digital copy of any printed photographs and return them to you.  

The Great Get Together and Big Lunch picnic organised by the Friends of Cannon Hill Common

This annual event was organised by The Friends on a sizzling Father’s Day, Sunday 18th June.  Held on the meadow by the lake everyone enjoyed a bring and share picnic to celebrate not only the annual get-together for Neighbours but also in celebration of the late Jo Cox, MP. A lovely idea.
