Friends' groups

We have several friends' groups helping us maintain and promote our parks and open spaces. People in these voluntary groups dedicate some of their time, energy and effort to care for and improve their local area. Anyone can join a friends' group.

What friends' groups do

Our friends' groups often get involved in activities such as organising local events in parks, litter picking, fundraising and helping us shape the future development of our parks.
