Hi everyone. I just wanted to write a short post to give you all some advance notice of an upcoming park event.
As I am sure you will all already be aware, 2018 heralds the huundred-year anniversary of the end of the Great War. The history of Roberts Park itself is closely intertwined with that of the war. This is because during the war the park itself was used as a major marshalling area and parade ground for troops heading off to fight in France.
To mark this centenary FoRP and the Parks Department will be arranging a series of World War One themed events to coincide with this year’s World Heritage Day. A major new permanent addition to the park will also be unveiled during the celebrations!
Full details follow on the poster below.
