‘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.

Planting tree whips from 'I Dig Trees'
During December 2021, a team of FoEP volunteers (including Sarah Lane with Scott and Dean, Amy Price with Hazel, Carole Morrison, David Liggins, Vic Smith and Christine Idilbi with her sister) planted 49 tree whips in Eastfield Park as follows: 16 Oak (Quercus robur), 10 Silver birch (Betula pendula), 9 Aspen (Populus tremula), 5 Beech (Fagus sylvatica), 3 Alder (Alnus glutinosa), 3 Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus), 2 Rowan (Sorbus aucuparia) and 2 Goat willow (Salix caprea). They also planted some daffodil bulbs among the oak whips. The whips were obtained by Sarah, free of charge, from 'I Dig Trees'. The following map shows the approximate planting locations.
'A Little Litter'
You don't have to wait for an organised community tidy-up to pick up litter in Eastfield Park (or anywhere else). You can collect a 'little litter' as you go about your normal activities in the Park. Wherever you see litter in the Park, pick it up and put it in a litter bin? Use litter pickers or gloved hands and always follow our litter picking guidance:
FoEP Committee Meetings
FoEP Committee Meetings are usually held on the third Tuesday of each month (except December and February) in the Eden Close Community Hub, Lakeview (NN3 6NS) between 7.00 and 8.30 pm. All members are invited to attend and comment but only committee members are entitled to vote on the issues discussed.
