Members of the FODP began work on clearing the pathway from the small car park to the circle of trees today. Over the years grass and other vegetation has encroached upon it, reducing it's width. It is hoped that in time the path will be clear and wide enough to allow people in wheel chairs or those who have to use walking aids access to more of the park than they can at the moment.                     Don Tait

The Friends of Dagnam Park are now looking for photographic submissions which, if chosen, will form the basis for a new FODP calendar for 2020. To achieve this we are asking for images which reflect daily life in the Dagnam Park (The Manor) Local Nature Reserve, be it the activities of the friend's group, park users, landscape images and of course the animals and plants that share the reserve with us. All images submitted must have been taken in Dagnam Park (The Manor) Local Nature Reserve and must be of a high pixel rate and pin sharp for printing. Money raised from the sale of the calendars is spent on FODP activities and goes towards capital projects carried out by the FODP in Dagnam Park Local Nature Reserve. The deadline for entering photographs is set for midnight Sunday 29th September 2019. Please send your images to                                                        Don Tait
