What We Do

  • We arrange payment for security guards to lock Balstonia Park each evening with local residents unlocking in the mornings.
  • The Annual "Party in the Park" is a community event for the residents of the Homesteads. The event includes bouncy castles, bucking bronco, face painting, craft tent (with glue,paint and sticky things), a tea tent, burger stall and a jazz band. Most attarctions are free of charge funded by the forum. 
  • We also invite local charities to run their own stalls. 
  • We organise a Childrens Christmas party  with entertainment and food, Father Christmas and a Christmas present for each child.  There is a nominal charge but the forum supplements the costs. 
  • We have paid for new play equipment for the park and persuaded TBC to paint the existing play equipment.
