This website deals mainly with the aims and activities of the Friends of Eastfield Park. While it does include some information about Eastfield Park itself, there will be much more information on a site we are developing about other aspects of the Park including its geology, drainage, history and wildlife. For the time being here is a link to an old site we were working on, although it is incomplete and some of the links no longer work:
News updated monthly.
Monthly news from January 2017.
(At present, news up to the end of 2016 is only available on the old website. Eventually it will be incorporated into the present site.)

CAROLS IN EASTFIELD
‘Friends of Eastfield Park’ (FoEP) is a voluntary community organisation whose main aim is to improve Eastfield Park, Northampton, UK, for the benefit of all its users. We do this through research, consultation, planning, development and promotion of the Park as well as organising conservation activities and social events in the Park.
Please note that our committee meetings will continue to be held between 7.00 and 8.30 pm throughout the winter months.
Why not join Friends of Eastfield Park and members of Broadmead Community Church to celebrate this Christmas season in the open air? As in recent years, we will be winding our way between the houses south of Eastfield Park. We will begin at the Greenfield Avenue entrance to the Park at 7.00 pm and walk together between the houses towards Eleonore House where we will finish up singing carols with residents. Do wrap up warm and bring a lantern or a torch.
NB! This is not a fund-raising event.
