Annual General Meeting, 21 October 2105

Following a lively meeting, the highlights were are as follows:

- We raised just under £3,000 at the Festival, which is phenomenal. We would like to
thank everyone who was involved in the planning and those who came on the day. Without you all
it would not have been such a success. ...

- We are looking to obtain match funding so that we can fund as many projects on the Fields
as possible, such as the installation of 7 Broxap (fox-proof) bins, new signs etc.

- There will be a further round of tree planting in March 2016.

Trim Trail - NOW INSTALLED !!

We are delighted to announce the arrival of the long-awaited Trim Trail. These pieces of outdoor
fitness equipment are manufactured from sustainable timber and were chosen for their quality
and ability to blend in with the park's natural environment. It is another positive intervention by the
Friends for everyone to enjoy. Please have a try and enjoy this fantastic new resource.

The equipment was purchased with a BIG Lottery Grant, a private donation and funds generated from the annual
Blythe Hill Fields Festival. The application was supported by Lewisham Council and Glendale.

We are grateful to everyone who has worked on and supported
this project.

Great to see adults and children all enjoying it already. Pictures: Ellie Rogers and Fitness for Mummies
