Latest News:


Friends of Oaks Park Annual Meeting & AGM will be held in the Mallinson Room, Wallington Library, Shotfield, Wallington at 2.30 p.m. on Saturday 16th November. Peter Wakeham, Chairman of the Downlands Trust will talk about chalk grasslands. There will be a short business meeting, which will include a resolution to amend the constitution. The amendment will simplify the way we monitor our accounts. Refreshments will be served. We will finish the meeting by 4.30 p.m. Please come along.

Bulb Planting: once again we have been given a large supply of daffodils and crocuses by the Council. We will be planting them on Sunday 27th October at 10.30 a.m. Please meet outside the café and bring a spade or a trowel.

Friends’ Newsletter: this is being prepared and will be circulated to all members before the annual meeting, by email or by post.

London in Bloom: We were delighted to learn that the Oaks Park has been given a Silver Gilt award this year. It represents a huge amount of work by Idverde, particularly our resident gardener, Tony Moorhouse, with some help from the Friends. We will be looking at the feedback and aiming to do even better and win a gold in 2020.

New Members of the Friends:
A number of people have taken out annual or life membership of the Friends recently, particularly at the CAOS weekends. We would like to welcome you to the Group and hope you will get involved in future activities.

New Leaseholders in the Café:
Ilhan and Tamara Besler took over the lease for the café in June 2019. We’re delighted to have them in the Park. They are already settling in very well.
