Friends of Sutton Park Association        www.fospa.org.uk

The Friends of Sutton Park Association (FOSPA) was established in 1950 in response to suggestions that parts of Sutton Park could be developed for housing and other buildings. Since then the park has been granted a National Nature Reserve status and certain areas have SSSI and Scheduled Ancient Monument status.  It is used by many hundreds of thousands of people every year for pleasure and recreational activities

FOSPA is also affiliated to the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers. It has a voluntary conservation team which works in partnership with the Sutton Park Ranger service to improve and enhance the rich mixture of wildlife and landscapes within the park.
