FoMFP 2020 Calendar

Orders for our 2020 calendar are now being taken and as is our usual practise, we offer a 25% reduction in the price for 'Early Bird' orders [£6.00/calendar instead of £8.00/calendar]; this Early Bird offer will end at midnight on Sunday 6th October.

We are producing our calendars earlier than usual this year [as regular purchasers will have observed] because we have noted, in recent years, that there is less time to send them to friends and family as gifts that will be delivered in time for Christmas.

To order your calendar/s, please contact the Secretary directly via email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it stating how many you require and, if you are not a subscribed member of the Asociation, include your name, address and postcode. If you are subscribed and know a member of the Committee you may ask to have your order passed on to the Secretary.

If you live in the local area, your calendars will be hand-delivered, thus negating the possibility of damage in the post and allowing payment to be collected [cash, or cheque - made payable to Friends of Manor Farm Park]. We operate a strict 'pay-on-delivery' policy as it obviates the administration time and cost of returning payments received if the number of orders does not justify the cost of production, printing, postage and distribution.

First Corporate Volunteer Work Day

1st T break opt 400After several attempts to organize a day of volunteer work in the park for company employees, who generally work in an office environment, we finally succeeded in getting passed the planning stage and out into the park on a lovely sunny day. Thursday 19th September will be recorded in our archives as the FoMFP's first Corporate Workday; seven employees from CS2, a Birmingham based firm of Chartered Surveyors gave up their usual workaday to resite one of our community notice boards, its original position being beneath trees which were discolouring and covering it with sap and so on; they then cleaned and sanded it down before giving it a fresh coat of paint. Two of our other four notice boards were also cleaned, sanded and repainted - after a short break for refreshments.

We had a picnic lunch and made our way to Her Majesty's 60th Jubilee Commerative Orchard alongside Whitehill Lane and these wonderful volunteers planted fruit trees they purchased and gave freely to the FoMFP.
