Donor Board reveal
Last month, many of our donors, including the Mayor of the Borough of Bracknell Forest and the Mayor of Bracknell Town Council, came to South Hill Park to see the unveiling of a new board thanking them for their support during the Covid-19 pandemic. It was lovely to see everyone come together through their love and support of South Hill Park.

People’s plan for nature
Nature has inspired some of the greatest artists across the UK to create incredible work. But nature is in crisis and we should all have a say in how we solve it.
Next time you visit us, you will find a People’s Plan for Nature tree situated in the Tall Hall, along with special inspiration leaves. Write down your thoughts on the leaves, hang it on the tree, and share it with the world.
