Mayflower 400

We all know that 2020 is a very special year, commemorating the voyage of the Pilgrim Fathers on the Mayflower and, Plymouth is preparing many different events throughout the year.

The FDP have been asked to take the lead on organising an event in Devonport, as this communities contribution to the celebrations.

Together with other park user groups, including the Devonport Field Gun Association, Marlborough Primary Academy, the Real Friends Social Group, The Park Pavilion Cafe and many, many more, we intend to stage an event on August 16th.

This will encompass a procession from Devonport Guildhall, through the streets of Devonport and ending up in the park, for a big community celebration day. For those of you who can remember it, this event will be similar to the event we held back in 2011 for the official re-opening of the park after the restoration – but BIGGER.

There have been several planning meetings to date and we are currently fundraising for it so, if any individuals or local businesses are reading this and would like to help out, we would be most grateful.
