Thank You From The Friends

Just a quick shout out to say a big “thank you!” to one of our supporters who kindly handed in a donation for us to one of the Park Rangers at Cliffe Castle, Keighley. This was completely unexpected and is very much appreciated!

Friends of Roberts Park Meeting, Thursday 23rd February

Hi everyone, just a quick note to confirm that the next Friends meeting will take place on Thursday 23rd February at 7pm at the Park Lodge (small building adjacent to Roberts Park rear entrance, near the childrens adventure playground). Please note here the change in meeting venue we are NOT meeting at Baildon Link!

Plenty to talk about at the moment – there will be updates and discussion about our ongoing plans for April’s World Heritage Weekend Event. We also have to discuss how we can further progress FORP’s top secret plan to re-introduce large-calibre naval weaponry into Robert’s Park (not joking…)

Come along to the meeting to find out more! Everyone welcome.

Bradford Dragon Boat Festival, 6th May

The Bradford Dragon Boat Festival will return on Saturday 6 May 2017 on the River Aire at Roberts Park in Saltaire.  As usual, we will be raising money for the Lord Mayor’s Appeal which this year is for YoungMinds.

This is a charity which helps children and young people (and their parents) in finding the right resources or support for issues related to mental health. This was a highly successful and enjoyable event in 2016, so let’s make it even bigger this year!
