All About FoMP

Local People Working Together

The Friends of Middleton Park (FoMP) were formed in 2003 to promote local interest and involvement in the park and its woodland.

  • Improving Facilities
    We are working with Leeds City Council (LCC) Parks & Countryside department to improve signing, footpaths, seating etc. Together with local schools, we are designing new flower beds, planting bulbs and bringing more colour to the park.

  • Encouraging Use
    FOMP organises free events in the park throughout the year. We concentrate mostly on events over the summer between the beginning of May to the end of September, including our Great Middleton Park show in early Spetember. See coming events for more details.

  • Protecting Wildlife
    The park and woods are full of wildlife. FoMP works with other groups such as LCC Forestry section to protect this wildlife and the habitats it needs to flourish.

  • Promoting Activities
    We work with the Middleton Railway Trust and other local groups to promote the park and all the activities that take place within it.

We use the information held to provide you with details about the events and activities taking place in the park, by FOMP and by other groups associated with us. We also provide other information concerning the charity, including details of our fundraising activities and financial information.

We keep hard copies of the membership forms to claim gift aid on your donation, where applicable, and as a back up to our electronic records. Gift Aid rules say that we must keep a record of declarations for 6 years after the most recent donation we claimed gift aid on.

We may also send you other information relating to Middleton Park, and other parks, that may be of interest to you as members.

Members Data - Retention Policy...
