Friends of Ropner Park

  • Description

    "...In October 2002, knowing that Stockton Borough Council were bidding for funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to renovate Ropner Park, a group of local people formed a “Friends” group. It was felt that having such a group would assist SBC in their bid and would allow local people the chance to have some say in what was being done to their park. It proved to be a great success...Once the renovation of the park was complete, FoRP’s main aim was to encourage more people into the park and to ensure that the high standards achieved were maintained.....Four Family Fun Days are hosted by The Friends each year. Each has a theme and visitors are encouraged to dress up appropriately depending on the theme.... The Friends of Ropner Park run the cafe in Ropner Park on a non profit making basis.....
