Through the restrictions we face, the Friends are still providing entertainment that all of our local community are welcome to join.

Free online quiz and bingo nights have been taking place on alternate Saturdays throughout the summer and autumn, and have been well attended.  The added bonus has been the provision of great meals, delivered to your door, for the sum of £6 per person.  The next big Festive offering, full details of which will be provided shortly.

REMEMBRANCE DAY – SUNDAY 8th NOVEMBER 2020 at 11.00 am

As usual we will be honouring those who made great sacrifices to retain our freedom and will be laying a wreath at the Lych Gate entrance to the park, together with our friends from the Harrow Weald Memorial Hall.  This event will observe social distancing rules and may be cancelled should further restrictions be in force. 

Should this be the case, we will provide updated information on our Facebook page, and on the event information at harrowweald.co.uk.
