We have reached our target for crowdfunding for 2 memorial benches forJohn Parker of Alexandra Nurseries who sadly died of cancer earlier this summer.
We are still crowdfunding on gofundme for new benches, one for each of our parks - see gofundme links.
Our mission statement is to maintain and enhance both Cator Park and Alexandra Recreation Ground as places of recreation, safety and healing and during this coronavirus pandemic we have seen how both parks have been just that to so many residents, young and old.
We want to create more seating opportunities so that you can take time to sit and be present in the park, taking in the trees and the wildlife or watch the cyclists and joggers go by, and to remember our friends.
We have been unable to fund raise in our normal ways over the last year due to the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions and so hope that you can support us with a donation however large or small towards this project.
The overall cost is estimated at £1,650 per bench - each one will be fixed in place on a brick base by the Bromley Parks contractors, idverde. The Friends have started the pot with £200 (£100 for each bench) from previous fundraisers.
