The Friends of Dagnam Park are asking for your help to win funding which will go towards the planting of trees along the drive way from the car park down to the Lily Pond. It also includes protection from potential deer damage. For the FODP to be in the running for the £1,000 grant for this Aviva project people need to cast all of their votes in favour of it. Each person will be allocated ten votes so please cast yours in favour of the FODP tree project. Please help the FODP reach the required 1,500 votes that last year proved to be successful.....many thanks. https://community-fund.aviva.co.uk/voting/project/view/17-4780  UPDATE 29-11-17. The FoDP entry has reached the finals. Alan York will complete the next stage and then we will have to vote again. So watch this space.

Congratulations to us! our Aviva grant for replacement trees down the avenue from the car park to the house site has been awarded. Thanks to all those who took the time to vote for us. We haven't actually received the funds yet. When we do, we will be seeking advice and support from LBH Parks Dept on where to purchase and the best way to protect the saplings from deer nibbling! Other tree news. LBH Tom Fradd has contacted us regarding replacement oak trees that will be planted in the ancient circle of trees site in the manor. There will be a publicity photo and he asked if any FODP members would attend the photo shoot. Our capital project for 2017/8 is a makeover of the Settle Road entrance. The new information sign is close to completion, and work will be needed to paint and tidy the area. Finally we do have a small number of FODP calendars left, if interested do contact FoDP at......... info@friendsofdagnampark.org.uk        Alan York

The dig team will be resuming their excavations of the Dagnams mansion site on Friday 19th January 2018, weather permitting. All are welcome to join in on this to discover the size and layout of the house and it would be nice to see some new faces. The dig team meet up at the site of the house adjacent to the Lily pond on Monday and Friday mornings between 9.30 and midday. Even if you can not take part in the dig all are welcome to pop along to have a chat whilst walking in the park.    Don Tait.
