Thanks. No I am not organising anything, sorry. I was just trying to find out when the Christmas carols in the park were happening. Sorry for any confusion.

Hi Regina, 

Thanks for the comment. It would be great to come to your next meeting. I live on Sefton Park Road, and am running a honeybee social enterprise, called Bee the Change and would be great to chat to you about potentially working with the community to encourage more people into keeping bees! Especially with that wonderful wildflower meadow :) There is lots of funding at the moment from the Green Capital fund, so perhaps we could improve the park even more. 

It would be great if you could let me know when the meeting is. 

Thanks, Heather

Hi Regina, thank you for letting me join the Friends of St.Andrews Park. Sorry its taken me so long to reply. My Sister Janet and her husband Jeremy lived on Leopold Road in the 1970s/80s. I viisted occasionally and often walked the park and found it am oasis of calm in the middle of the big city. I will see if i can find any old photos i can add. I stumbled across your lovely website by chance and am very pleased i did. I enjoy reading peoples postings. Steve

Thanks Jo and Regina. I will try and come to the meeting if I'm free then.

Kind regards,
