The Friends of Belstead Brook Park (FoBBP) are a group of local volunteers that help look after the Park for the benefit of its users and local wildlife.  We work closely with the Greenways Countryside Project, Pinewood Parish Council and other partners interested in the Park. You can now follow us on our Facebook Page.

Our next Work Party event that was to be on  Saturday 9th September  between 10am and 1pm meeting in the Bourne Park car park off Stoke Park Drive. The plan is to rake the meadow area in Stoke Park Wood and create habitat piles with the cut vegetation.

Note: We have cancelled our work party event proposed for 11th November and instead will be joining forces with Greenways and IWG for their MegaBash event on Sunday 19th November. More details later.
