Your Help Needed
If you can spare any spare time with us on Saturday morning you would be most welcome to join us. We will be re commencing our action days shortly.
It was with great sadness that the Friends of Shenley Park learnt of the recent death of Andy Boeckstaens, Green Spaces Area Officer at LB Hillingdon.
We have worked closely with Andy over a number of years to improve the appearance of Shenley Park. He was extremely supportive of the aims of the group and many of the visible improvements to Shenley Park in recent years would not have been achieved without him.
We will miss his good natured enthusiasm for our ideas as well as his professional approach and can do attitude. Our condolences go to his friends and family.
