FoSJP AGM 2015 - Thursday 14th May

This year the Friends of St.James' Park held our Annual General Meeting in the ParkLife Community Room at St.James' Park on Thursday 14th May.

This was a great opportunity for everyone to get together, hear about the last year in the Park and about plans for the coming year, and celebrate all that we’ve achieved.

We were very pleased to confirm two previously co‑opted members as full Committee members, to welcome three new Committee members, and to thank two long‑serving Committee members who are standing down.

Visit our FoSJP page to find out more.

Thanks to everybody who turned up to support us!
