Friends of Ewell Court Park

The Friends of Ewell Court Park, formed in September 2001, is a voluntary community group dedicated to the local park.

Although a very small group, we have kept a close watch over the Park since our inauguration. Many of our group are dog owners and are in the Park every day.

We see our role as the eyes and ears of the Park.

We liaise with the Council when things have occurred in the Park that need attention, a tree blown down, a railing broken, a hole in the path etc.  If we see any problems or are told about them, we try and act promptly to notify the appropriate authority or organisation.  We work closely with the Epsom and Ewell Borough Council Rangers who give us great support.

We endeavour to undertake a small amount of work in the Park including any planting. For example, after the ‘Herald of Spring’ the ‘Friends’ groups are able to have some of the plants and bulbs that have been used to decorate Bourne Hall.

The wildlife in the Park is also carefully monitored and gives a great deal of pleasure to Park users, young and old.  We also keep an eye on the ducks and waterfowl on the lake to make sure they are regularly fed in bad weather when there are fewer visitors to the Park.  If there are any serious problems we would notify the Rangers or Wild Life Aid as appropriate.

Our group is part of an umbrella group called FEEPs (Friends of Epsom and Ewell Parks), where representatives from each participating park meet with the Council and Councillors to discuss any major park issues and to join together to carry out tasks that would be beyond a small group.  In this way the woodland trail in Ewell Court Park was created.

For any information on the ’Friends’ either contact the Secretary, Thelma on 020 8393 8129 or the Ranger Service 01372 732000.
