Friends of Belstead Brook Park

Hear the latest news of what is happening in Belstead Brook Park, and to show your support for the Park, please join our mailing list.

The Friends of Belstead Brook Park (FoBBP) are a group of local volunteers that help look after the Park for the benefit of its users and local wildlife.  We work closely with the Greenways Countryside ProjectPinewood Parish Council and other partners interested in the Park. You can now follow us on our Facebook Page.

Regrettably, we will have to cancel our next Work Party event planned for  Saturday 14th October as there was insufficient core members available to support it.

Note: We have moved our work party event proposed for 11th November so that we can join forces with Greenways and IWG for their MegaBash event being held later in the month on Sunday 19th November. More details later.

Future planned practical conservation work events for 2017:

Sunday 19th November 10am – 3pm (Greenways Megabash#1 event)
Saturday 9th December 10am – 3pm (Greenways Megabash#2 event)

The recent increase in the illegal use of off-road motorbikes in and around the Belstead Brook Park area has been discussed in the local press recently. Basically motorbikes can only be used on private land with the landowner’s consent and they do not have it so it should be reported to the police on 101. See our post ‘Motor Bike problem in Belstead Brook Park’ for more information.

If you’re interested in taking part, please join our mailing list so that you receive details of what we’ll be doing and where to meet.

The latest edition of the Local Wildlife News (LWN) is now available on the Greenways website as a pdf file. A map showing the network of nature reserves, parks and other green spaces, and all the corridors connecting them throughout Ipswich can be downloaded from the Greenways website using this link Ipswich Wildlife Network leaflet and Map.
