A busy summer for the Friends thank YOU HARFIELDERS for the awesome ongoing support that is helping to shape our parks into the green jewels we want them to be.  

Our stall at the Carnival was a huge success and we all but sold out the wonderful collection of succulents, lilies, herbs and veg and a collection of garden flowers grown by kind people for us. We raised a huge R9000 from the raffles, donations and plant sales and this will go a long way to cover the costs of the stunning new entrance arch at Hampstead, the new gum pole fencing and the new flowerbeds to come.  

The fencing has been lined up opposite the entrances onto Hampstead road so that from the bottom section of the park there is not an open line of sight to the road.   The idea is to slow kids and dogs down so they do not dash into the street.

Upcoming Events that you need to diarise.

  • This Sunday 24 April – Hampstead Park Gardening Party–  come along with a spade or broom to help garden and clean or a bucket to collect the huge qty of glass that came to the surface after the heavy rain a few weeks back.  We start at 9 and go till lunch.  
  • Sunday 15 May – Annual Railway line clean up – bring your bags, hats and a black bag and come along for a walk and litter collection along the railway line.  The more the merrier,  bring the kids and the neighbours (no dogs).   Start at Kenilworth Station at 8.30 am and end at Harfield station at 11.   Saturday 28 May Hampstead Park Gardening Party Part 2
