November Work Party
Sunday, 24th November 2019
Venue: FoPB Beach Hut opposite Milos
Time: 10:30 - 12:30 hrs

Gorse Bashing

This is one of our most popular work parties that might, the weather gods permitting, allow us to have a bonfire.

Today we are building on our past work to manage the gorse covering the important grasslands towards the western end of the dunes, and starting up the programme to manage the blocks on a 10 year rotation.

 Please wear boots, spare loppers always welcome, we have gloves and specs.

 Meet at the FoPB hut at 10:30 hrs

 If it does look like bonfire and picnic weather- bring a foil wrapped spud and stay a bit longer.

Co-op Local Community Fund
24th October 2019

Following an application we made to the Co-op Local Community Fund we are most pleased to have received the following Email:

Congratulations! Friends of Par Beach has been chosen to benefit from the next round of the Co-op Local Community Fund.

The funding round will open on 27 October 2019 and close on 24 October 2020.

During this funding phase, Co-op Members will be able to choose you as their local cause.

Every time a member buys selected own-brand products and services, 1% of the money they spend goes to local causes in their community, so it’s important you raise your profile and encourage members to choose your cause.

To get you ready for the launch, please encourage your supporters, volunteers, friends and family to become a Co-op Member. They can join online at https://membership.coop.co.uk/new-registration.

We’ll contact you next week when the round opens with more information about how the fund works. We’ll also invite you to a special webinar so you can ask questions and find out more.

Congratulations once again, we’re looking forward to supporting your project and helping you make great things happen in your community.

Best wishes,

April Armstrong

Co-op Local Giving Manager
