Whilst the main focus for a Friends group may be to directly improve your local green space, it also about developing and building a relationship between the community and us – working together to achieve shared aims, access to local knowledge, greater support and pride from within the community. Friends groups are best placed to help identify local needs and priorities for local green spaces, listening to and reflecting the community’s expectations, proposals and aspirations for their park.

The Green Spaces Pledge sets out the positive intention of the group and our team and outlines the support offered. It is not intended as a legal document or contract but is aimed to help ensure the management and development of the green space is supported by both parties.
