What is happening in Tividale Park in 2020?
In May 2020 Friends of Tividale Park are holding a Facebook meeting and fund-raising event. Everyone is welcome to participate – the friends group needs you more than ever to support the Community Hub, Gardening and Planting, events and to represent the community.
Tividale Allotment Association Held their AGM in this year at parks community hub early this year before the lockdown came into force. The group are associate members of Friends of Tividale Park and were looking forward to making more regular use of the new facilities.
Friends of Tividale Park are inviting nominations for committee members – our AGM has been postponed but we hope we can adapt by starting online gatherings instead. This will also help with winter months when we normally go dormant.
We are looking for Secretary, Treasurer, Chair, Vice chair, TFA Lead, and safeguarding. We are also looking for a fundraising lead.
Tividale Fitness Army have applied for a grant for exercise equipment and look forward to being able to recommence weekly events.
In May 2020 Friends of Tividale Park were awarded a £500 grant to put on an event in Tividale Park – we are currently looking for volunteers interested in helping make this happen.
Re-establishment of the Football changing rooms
It is our long-term goal to re-establish toilets and showers in the changing rooms – this work has been delayed by the Covid 19 outbreak. We would also like the hardcore area outside the Community Hub tarmacked and lighting to make the area more user-friendly.
We need to raise more to have a permanent Community Hub sign – the spray painted one erected last year is now worn out and illegible. Friends of Tividale Park need to raise money to cover the cost of insurance for the group’s volunteers and events.
We have set up a Fundraising Page at https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/tividale-park

Events in Tividale Park 2019
Bat Walk events April and September 2019
Very happy how the event went, great turn out from the public, thanks to Oldbury and Tipton Facebook pages and the Police for spreading the word.
Wildlife Trust volunteers were fabulous, and we found indications of 2 bat species in the park. The Friends of Tividale will relocate 5 bat boxes that are poorly placed and plant more wild flower seeds and night scented flowers to help our nocturnal flying friends. Thanks again to everyone who came, next time hope to have Community Hub open for hot drinks.
The Friends of Tividale Park Group support plans to improve the facilities in the park, organise and develop a range of community activities and events, to bring people of all ages together to have fun and enjoy the park.
The Friends of Tividale Park are a residents’ community group who work to improve the park in various ways, including fund-raising for new equipment, volunteering, and supporting events. So why not get involved and help them to make Tividale Park a real hive of community activity.
Tividale Park has a history of Gala events; and on Saturday 7th July we host an community event to mark the parks 90th anniversary year, and the Black Country Festival. Video of some of our bands are on You Tube.
Painting and Big Spring Clean – hopefully residents will have noticed the improvement to the park carried out by volunteers as part of the big spring clean. Clean Here to find out more.
Also six new benches were installed in May 2018.
