About Us

FOTP

The FOTP organises six weekend activities per year at the Prom and an annual luncheon in August-September. In addition, the nursery group meets to work in the FOTP nursery in Tidal River every second Thursday.

Activity weekends are held in February, April, May, July, September and November. The Annual General Meeting and a General Meeting are held on the Sunday morning of the July weekend. Between Annual Meetings, the FOTP is administered by an elected committee.

Visitors are always welcome and are usually introduced by a member. In return for making a contribution to the work planned for that weekend we do not have to pay entry or camping fees. The FOTP is a family friendly group and children are welcome. Some of the heavier physical work is not suitable for younger children, but there is usually alternative work to do such as weeding or beach combing.
