A new page on the archeological dig has just been uploaded. It includes photographs and a written account of the work to date.

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.

Latest News; 21-22nd April 2018

For those that can, join us this weekend 21-22nd April 2018 for our regular litter picks. We meet as usual in the Settle Road car park at 9.30pm. The ten hawthorn trees granted by Aviva are now planted in the avenue from the car park to the house site. The FODP have responsibility to water them during the dry periods. We also have ten oak trees planted at various locations, these came from LBH who were granted trees for the borough by the government. Finally we are planning to have a sponsored walk in aid of the St Francis Hospice. The route will be around the nature reserve on Saturday 19th May 2018 starting at 10am. There will be signage and marshals along the way. We will be providing light refreshments. There will be an entry fee of one pound per person ( this will be donated to the Hospice). You can also organise your own sponsors, forms can be emailed to you. If interested please let us know ASAP.

The Friends of Dagnam Park with the assistance of the London Borough of Havering parks department today began the planting of the tree saplings along the approach pathway to the old manor house site. We bought the trees through the services of LBH, so were able to get a cost reduction and hence purchased more with our initial £1000 grant.     SEE PHOTOS

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.
