We are pleased to announce that at the Spelthorne Council meeting yesterday, a motion to protect Staines Park through Fields In Trust was unanimously voted in. This was the ultimate aim of the Save Staines Park committee and all the residents who supported us during the year, thank you everyone!
Our work doesn’t stop though. As a protected, vital space for our local community, we are setting up an official Staines Park Residents Association.
The Mission of SPRA is to “Protect, promote and enhance Staines Park for the benefit, health, recreation and enjoyment of current and future generations of local residents.”
We welcome membership applications from residents who support the above aims, are 16 years old and over, and who live in the electoral wards surrounding the park, namely Staines, Staines South and Riverside & Laleham. As a member, you will be informed of events and issues affecting Staines Park via email or post. We will canvas your views on any park business and you will be invited to attend and vote at General Meetings of the Residents Association. You will also be able to volunteer for any of the Association’s Committees.
Membership is only £3 per person or £5 per family.
Please come along to our next meeting on Thursday 7th Nov. at 8pm, at Staines Bowls Club to find out more, join up or put yourself forward for a role.
