Welcome to the official website of the Friends of East Greenwich Pleasaunce (FEGP), a community group set up and run by local residents with the backing of Greenwich Council.
Its aim is to promote the use, enjoyment and enhancement of East Greenwich Pleasaunce - a small park with a big history.
Through our events and campaigning we hope to improve the fabric and ambience of the park and build a stronger, more engaged local community.
FEGP’s Committee was voted in by residents at a public meeting on 20th March 2006. We now have over 300 members and over 100 households on our email distribution list. If you would like to be added to our email list please email our chair, Matthew Wall at [email protected].
We organise a range of events in the park, including our hugely successful annual picnics (see the photo albums on the home page), Trafalgar Day commemorations, Easter Egg hunts, and Christmas Carols with Santa. We also liaise closely with the Council to ensure the park is well maintained, and campaign for improved facilities within the park.
Visit the site regularly for news about East Greenwich Pleasaunce and announcements of meetings and local events. And if you want to know more about the Park's fascinating history click on the 'History' link on the homepage.
We’d also like to hear your views on how we can improve the Park and the events we organise. And if you have any interesting stories concerning the Park - relatives buried in the Naval cemetary, perhaps - do get in touch. We're also happy to consider posting your photos on the website, so please send them in.
We do hope you’ll consider becoming a Friend and getting more involved in your local community. We're already making a big difference. Membership costs just £5 for an individual, or £10 for a family.
