If you have visited Page Park in recent years you will have noticed the improvements and enjoyed the events that the Friends of Page Park have organised and been part of.

The Friends are proud of what has already been achieved since the group was formed in 1999 and it is vital to keep up the good work.

We currently urgently need more people to get involved and help with planning and running our popular events.  This could be overseeing a specific event, or providing support to other event organisers for particular activities.  All help is much appreciated and we really want to hear from you.  

Why volunteer?
Volunteering is incredibly fullfilling and personally beneficial, so why not join the Friends and help us achieve even more.

We are a friendly group of local residents and park users who are commited passionately to protecting and improving the park for the community today and in the future.
