Parks Support Groups

Parks Support Groups

For many years local communities have felt that their local park or open space has been neglected and they have been powerless to do anything about it. Setting up a parks supporters group gives all members of the community the chance to develop their local park or open space in line with their needs.

Forming a Supporters Group places the ownership firmly within the community. Being a “friend” of a park or open space is an excellent way of providing facilities, events and activities for your local community. Although this is sometimes hard work the rewards are more than worth the effort.
