It's beginning to look a lot like winter!

What's happening in the park?


We are a self funded charity made up of fantastic volunteers dedicated to the Prince of Wales Park. We meet twice weekly on a Wednesday and Saturday morning at 9 am for half a day. Tools are provided, Each session has a first aider and a Site Manager to organise the session.


The Friends Group is divided into History, Environmental, Wildlife and Community projects all designed to make the park a more welcoming and enjoyable place to be.


The Friends Group receives no funding and depends on awards, donations and membership subscriptions. If you feel you wish to become a member or make a donation,please read on.

News 1

Our winter season has started. Banners up at the main entrances and soon it will be the start of the Snowman Trail. NOTE slight error on the poster. The trail is a two week event starting (officially) on Sunday 17th not Saturday. Have fun finding the snowmen and working out the first line of the Christmas song from the letters on each snowman. Remember to leave a message on our big Christmas tree when you have completed the trail.

Don't forget Carols 'n' Cake at 11 am on Saturday 23rd December in the arena. If you can, bring food to share. Enjoy a cuppa or mulled wine (juice for the kids). Have a singalong to the festive songs.

Remember these are free events brought to you by the Friends of Prince of Wales Park

Any donations are always welcome

News 2

The Friends of Prince of Wales Park have recently become aware of a proposed development adjacent to the park. The proposal is for 70 houses with access via Heights Lane, which in itself is an issue but the proposal also provides for a new access for pedestrians and cyclists through Prince of Wales Park. It should be noted that the Park has a grade II listing, the proposed "new" pedestrian and cycling route would be next to an area of Scientific Interest, would damage local wildlife habitats and would potentially exit the park onto the busy Parkside road. The planning process is underway and comments have been invited. If you wish to comment please do so at..
