Friends of Dyce Park ask for supporters to attend AGM or work may be jeopardised

Afriends group set up eight years ago to safeguard a popular park for the community says it needs support to secure its future.

Friends of Dyce Park was started in 2008 when there were concerns that a proposed residential development might seek to build an access road through the space.

Since then a raft of improvements have been made to the park that lies off Peel Street in Partick.

These include a central labyrinth feature in a fenced off dog free zone and the provision of new paths, benches and planting.

The area is used by nearby Fortrose Day Nursery and residents of Hanover Sheltered Housing.

A poster for the group’s AGM this week at the nearby cricket club says numbers are needed to ensure its continued work.

And it warns if people don’t come the group “wont have a quorum, we wont be able to keep going, and we wont be able to keep making improvements”.

In the future, the Friends group says it would like to get the railings painted and to raise funds for further landscaping.

* If you don’t:

* we won’t have a quorum

* we won’t be able to keep going

* we won’t be able to keep making improvements

The Friends Facebook page says: “We’ve shown that its possible to make our little park one that is much more useful to a wide range of local people and want to keep things moving forward.

“We need more help to do this and would like to invite YOU to give us a hand.

“If you can commit a little time to helping – either with just one finite project or becoming a committee member to co-ordinate and support other projects, we would really appreciate hearing from you.”
