Get involved with FOSP

The Friends of Sandford Parks have three main roles and we are always welcoming to new members. Since starting to work with Cheltenham Borough Council, we have achieved many improvements to the Sandford Park area making it a more enjoyable place for the entire community.

The Chair,  Vice-chair,  Secretary and Treasurer meet regularly - usually once a month.  A review is made of all current activities,  proposals and projects.

Three times a year a general meeting ,  open to all,  is held to bring the membership up-to-date with what is currently proposed and happening.  The purpose of these meetings is partly  to convey information but also to encourage members to become involved not just in physical activities like litter picking and park maintenance volunteering,  but in promoting ideas for improvement,  for suggesting the means of funding those ideas and  the contacts individuals may have to help delivering on those ideas. 
The last  FOSP General Meeting was  held on 4th December 2023.    6:00pm upstairs in the Sandford Alehouse  20 High St  Cheltenham GL50 1DZ   The meeting was followed by a convivial Christmas dinner for 20 people
The dates  of the next General Meetings will be Monday 18th March2024,  Monday 17th June 2024 and Monday 2nd December 2024.   Times and locations will be announced  in good time prior to the meetings
 Whenever meetings are held do come along to hear about new proposals and developments for the Park and to contribute your ideas and experiences. As a member you are or would be separately notified
Usually held now in the autumn, these meetings follow the format of any AGM - review of the preceding year, proposals for the coming year, financial position and election of the officers.  The 2024 AGM will be held on Monday 14th October 2024.  Again, time and location will be announced in good time prior to the meeting.
All are cordially invited - whether you are a member, guest or a concerned and interested user of the park
