We are ten years into the project and have a community cafe that has been in place for 5 years, such an amazing achievement. The trustees now manage Friends of Hardie Park alongside a fantastic team of volunteers and will continue to do all the good things for and with the community to ensure the legacy of Hardie Park lives on.

Six months into our new chapter we have safely opened the takeout, given the ‘pop-up’ a new home operating daily from the park, renovated the 1:1 room with more cafe improvements planned and provided some spectacular new seating for our customers outside.

Support for the project continues to grow and the trustees are delighted to welcome Ed Pearce to the Board at Hardie Park. Ed lives locally, brings a wealth of charity sector experience and a detailed knowledge of fundraising so he’ll be a real asset to the already strong trustee team.

Thanks to Rob for starting those litter picks over 10 years ago and having the inspiration, drive, determination and support of all the wonderful volunteers to deliver what seemed like a dream. Here’s to the next five years, looking forward to exciting times ahead!
