INVITATION FROM THE CHAIRMAN
It gives me great pleasure to draw your attention to the work of the Friends of Stansted Park ( FOSP ).
Stansted Park attracts thousands of visitors every year, drawn by its great beauty and tranquility, excellent facilities and a long and fascinating history.
I invite you to consider joining us in our support of the Stansted Park Foundation whose dedicated work has lead to formal recognition of the estate as being one of the Best Small Attractions in the south east.
FRIENDS OF STANSTED PARK INTRODUCTION
Today the membership of FOSP stands at over five hundred. The support given by the Friends runs into many spheres of the work of the Foundation in terms of volunteering, fundraising, stewarding and helping to raise the Foundation’s profile locally. Please feel free to offer as much or as little time as you can spare. Alternatively, you may wish to support the Foundation as a member only. By becoming a Friend of Stansted Park you can help the Foundation achieve its aims and preserve Stansted for posterity.
