Wormholt Park 100th Birthday Party: you're invited

Wormholt Park in days gone by - from
The Friends of Wormholt Park are staging a two day party to mark the green space's centenary this week and they'd very much like you to come along. Even better, they'd like you to help out on the day if you're so inclined.

On Friday I'm told there will be a schools day between 1300-1500 when180 children from seven local schools will be in the park learning about local history, bird watching with the BBC’s David Lindo, playing sports with QPR Football Club, and making birthday cards and bunting for the birthday wishing tree. They will also be joined by local Mayor, Cllr Frances Stainton.

Then on Saturday the park will be adorned with food and market stalls, music, history tours, games and children’s activities, hanging birthday cards and best wishes on the birthday wishing tree, and lots of sports.

QPR Football Club is hosting a sports clinic and there will be handball, futsal and frisbee demonstrations, as well as yoga and free massages.

At 4pm, this being a civilised bunch, they will be hosting Afternoon Tea. They would love it if you could join them to cut a giant cake, talk to some special guests, and sing happy birthday together.

The Friends of Wormholt Park are also looking for volunteers to help on the day. Events Co ordinator, Lorraine, would like to hear from you if you can offer some of your time. Email:

Maybe see you there!
