We encourage all local residents and their families (and anyone else in Haringey for that matter who loves this park) to become Friends of FARRG.

You can help by joining us and becoming a Friend through an annual £5 membership.

FARRG was founded in 2001 and is run by local residents, working on a voluntary basis, to promote the public benefit and enjoyment of Albert Road Recreation Ground. We are a non-profit group working closely with Pavilion Sports and Cafe, Haringey Council, local schools and other partners, for the benefit of the whole Community.

Your support and involvement are fundamental to our success and to our key objective which is to transform the Albert Road Recreation Ground into one of the most loved green spaces in London.

You can help by joining us and becoming a Friend through an annual £5 membership. There are numerous ways in which you can contribute to our work and to the further development of the park. These range from:

  • Help with the planning and promotion of events, providing suggestions and feedback, assisting with PR activities, liaising with partners and helping with fund-raising activities;
  • joining the committee itself or
  • Taking part in our events which include Family Sports Days, our popular Jazz Fest and Quiz Nights and Free Beginners’ Tennis through "Freesport"

We rely purely on sponsorship and donations in order to carry out our work which is entirely voluntary. Your annual membership fee will help contribute to our activities and achievements which, over the last 10 years, have included the following:

  • Complete renovation of the Tennis and Basketball Courts
  • Improvements to the Children’s Play area
  • The erection of the Oliver Tambo Memorial
  • Raised Money for Charity: Cancer Research Relay for Life, Sports Relief, Marie Currie
  • Annual Parks Awards: Green Flag, London Mayors’ Safer Parks
  • The Award of Queen Elizabeth II status which provides enhanced protection and funding opportunities to our park.

As a Friend you will get to hear about local events and news and will be invited to participate in all of our activities. You will also receive a priority invitation to our annual Friends’ Cocktail Reception at the Pavilion.

You can find out more about our work and achievements by referring to our AGM reports which can be found here.
