Friends of Cottons Park

The Friends of Cottons Park are a group of local residents who care about the welfare of the park. Formed in 2002 to find ways of improving and encouraging people back into Cottons. We are a constituted group with our own bank account, holding monthly meetings that are minuted. After we formed a partnership with Havering Parks and Open Spaces we were able to achieve major refurbishment on this once run-down area. Other partnerships have been formed with local organisations. The park has been transformed into a green, welcoming and vibrant park. With our partnerships we were successful in winning a �Green Flag� every year since 2009 in recognition that this park has reached a high national standard. An important criteria in the �Green Flag� judging is a strong community involvement with the park.
