Visitors are welcome to attend any time between 1pm and 3.30pm as we will be running an ECO fayre day – our “Pumpkin Party” – both to demonstrate the wide range of green projects that VANEL has been involved with and also to do some ECO fundraising!

Parking is on street around the park.

Anyone representing a VANEL Member or Friend or partner organisation is welcome to attend.  Paid up VANEL members are the only ones allowed to vote on matters where voting is required.
