Tividale Allotment Association Held their AGM in this year at parks community hub early this year before the lockdown came into force. The group are associate members of Friends of Tividale Park and were looking forward to making more regular use of the new facilities. 

Friends of Tividale Park are inviting nominations
for committee members – our AGM 2019 was postponed but we hope we can resume near normality soon.

We are looking for Secretary, Treasurer, Chair, Vice chair, TFA
Lead, and safeguarding. We are also looking for a fundraising lead.

Tividale Fitness Army have applied for a grant for exercise equipment and look forward to being able to recommence weekly events.

In May 2020 Friends of Tividale Park were awarded a £500 grant to put on an event in Tividale Park – we are currently looking for volunteers interested in helping make this happen.

Re-establishment of the Football changing rooms

It is our long-term goal to re-establish toilets and showers in the changing rooms – this work has been delayed by the Covid 19 outbreak. We would also like the hardcore area outside the Community Hub tarmaced and lighting to make the area more user-friendly.

Fundraising

We need to raise more to have a permanent Community Hub sign – the
spray painted one erected last year, is now worn out and illegible. Friends of Tividale Park need to raise money to cover the cost of insurance for the group’s volunteers and events.

We have set up a Fundraising Page at https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/tividale-park
