The Friends of Levengrove Park are an inclusive, informal group of local volunteers who are passionate about the park and work in close partnership with the Council’s Greenspace Community Ranger Service and the HSCP Work Connect Specialist Supported Employment Service.
The group base their activities in the park and volunteer their time assisting with various activities including managing and maintaining the Community Orchard and the War Memorial Garden. Group members also lead with the Ranger Service on inspirational walks, assist with community events, undertake visitor surveys and in growing and harvesting fruit.
The Friends Group also arrange jam making sessions with Café staff within the Pavilion. In addition, the group apply for grant aid to help enhance the park and provide additional activities to improve the visitor experience, e.g. the Community Orchard and the Putting Green.
This is a consultative community group and they are regularly consulted by the Council on park developments. New members are always welcome to attend monthly meetings.
