Thank you to all the members that attended the 2019 AGM

Thank you to the members of F0MECP who braved tthe weather to attend the AGM on Sunday 3 March at the Edgcumbe Arms.

Following the business of the AGM, we heard from Chris Burton, Park Manager, about the plans for the Park over the next year, including new holiday lets, signage and increased parking.

This was followed by a fascinating talk by Nicola Moyle, Head of Heritage, Art & Film, Plymouth City Council, on the exciting plans for the new exhibits at The Box, which is due to open in Spring 2020.

A big ‘thank you’ to the Edgcumbe Arms for very kindly providing the Upstairs Room, so that the AGM could go ahead, after the decision was made to close the Park, due to forecast high winds.

 

AGM is going ahead - please note change of venue

The FoMECP AGM is going ahead on Sunday 3 March at 2pm.

Camellias & Daffoldils are looking fabulous in the Park this half-term

The Camellias, in their home at the National Camillia Collection at Mount Edgcumbe, are looking fabulous around the Park in the sunshine this February half-term.

The swathes of daffoldils around the grounds are also looking really good at the moment.

February Update on the Friends Lodge

Work continues on the Friend’s Lodge – the site has been now been completly cleared, the footprint of the lodge has been dug out, the area levelled and marked out. A weedproof membrane and plastic base has been layed.

Stones have been ordered and are arriving early next week. The plan is for these to be layed over this base next week by a team of volunteers.
