What’s happening in Norbury Hall Park in 2021?
Thursday 11 February 2021
Well 2020 was a very challenging year, I’m sure you’ll agree. But one real positive is that Norbury Hall Park has had one of the best years many of us can remember. The Covid-19 pandemic, with its successive lockdowns and increased home working, has meant the park has been much busier than usual.
It’s been wonderful to see people, particularly young families, out discovering all the park has to offer. Climbing the Squirrel Park’s famous Cedar tree, scampering over the fallen logs and scooting along the winding paths.
For the Friends of Norbury Hall Park, 2020 meant we couldn’t progress many of our plans for the park as far as we would have liked. But, we’ve been busy planning over the winter. This year we will be unveiling our exciting vision for Norbury Hall Park and we are keen to get your thoughts.
As well as improving the park and keeping it in tip top condition, our aim is to grow the number of people using the park. It’s a wonderful community space and it deserves to be enjoyed by many more people.
So, look out for news coming in the spring. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to stay up-to-date. We’re always keen for more people to get involved with the work of the Friends of Norbury Hall Park. Even if you only have a few hours to spare each month, please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org

There has been community power in action this weekend in Norbury Hall Park. The Friends have been out in force giving the park a good tidy-up before winter.
We were joined by some new volunteers, which was really fantastic. Plus Norbury & Pollards Hill’s elected member Councillor Shafi Khan also got stuck into the hedges with a litter picker, which was wonderful to see.
The new Friends of Norbury Hall Park high-vis bibs received their debut. If you were walking through the park this morning you couldn’t have missed us, we were a sea of luminous yellow.
We collected some twenty or so bags of rubbish from all corners of the park, which was a great team effort. Sadly, these included a rug, duvet and pillow, which suggests someone has been sleeping rough in the park at some point. Please do keep an eye out and let us know if you see anything of this nature.
