Who are the Friends? 


The Friends of Apex Park Improvements Group (FOAP) are a voluntary, fully constituted group, established in 2001. Their aim is 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.


The group meets on a regular basis at Apex Information Office, Marine Drive and work closely with Sedgemoor District Council to achieve the following:


To work in partnership with Sedgemoor District Council and other interested parties to help manage and generally look after the Apex park to enhance its value to the community


To make changes which will be of benefit to those visiting the park and the flora and fauna living in it


To raise awareness and profile of the park


To influence and adopt the District Council's Management Plan for the park and help achieve its aims and objectives.
