SUTTON PARK NATIONAL NATURE RESERVE AND FRIENDS OF SUTTON PARK ASSOCIATION
Anyone visiting Sutton Park cannot help but want to protect this wonderful amenity for future generations!
The Friends of Sutton Park Association has been very successful in doing this for 70 years. FoSPA was founded in 1950 in response to suggestions at the time that parts of Sutton Park could be made available for building on. Today, as a National Nature Reserve, Site of Special Scientific Interest, Scheduled Ancient Monument and Registered Historic Park the future of Sutton Park has probably never been safer. FoSPA, affiliated to The Conservation Volunteers, concentrates resources on funding voluntary conservation projects in Sutton Park.
We work in partnership with the Sutton Park Ranger Service. All the work undertaken is based upon careful management plans drawn up between Natural England and other qualified ecological experts.
We also have two representatives on the Sutton Park Advisory Committee where we are able to put forward our views on all matters relating to the running of the Park. Thus ensuring that our voice is heard and our opinions are given consideration at the highest consultative level.
