Welcome to the official Website for the
Friends of Apex Park, Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset
The Friends of Apex Park are a voluntary, fully constituted group, established in 2001, who aim to provide opportunities for community members to improve and promote the use of the park, to help protect and enhance Apex Leisure and Wildlife Park as a place of freedom, recreation, wildlife habitat and enjoyment for all sections of the local community.
We meet on a regular basis, and work closely with Sedgemoor District Council to improve the park as best we can.
To find out more or if you wish to volunteer and become a "Friend" of the park please contact the groups Secretary Marina Turner; marina.turner@Sedgemoor.gov.uk
