On 31 March 2014, the opening day of Panshanger Country Park East in Hertfordshire, over one hundred Friends of Panshanger Park and local walkers set off on the friends’ People’s Walk, from Hertingfordbury into the long overdue country park.  Since then the eastern end of the park has been much welcomed and enjoyed by thousands of people.  However there are huge areas of the park still to be opened, including areas with some of the park’s finest features such as the Broadwater and the Panshanger Great Oak.

To demonstrate the community’s concern about these continuing and unnecessary delays, the friends are holding the People’s Anniversary Walk on Tuesday 31 March 2015.  Walkers will enter from all sides of the park and meet at Riverside Cottage at 11am.

More details will follow on the friends’ website, including routes and parking options.  The event will also celebrate our 150th anniversary and our general secretary Kate Ashbrook will join the walkers.  OSS members are welcome.
