Getting by with a little help from our friends… of Norris Green Park
Established in 2018, Friends of Norris Green Park volunteer group are on the lookout for more people to come and get involved in improving the park. The group have lots of volunteering opportunities from litter picking & planting, painting signage, bins and benches, making pallet planters & seating, to helping to restore the old walled kitchen garden, sunken rose garden & old stables that belonged to the long-gone Norris Green mansion. There are also behind the scenes roles such as fundraising, social media admin, and blog writing, as well as lots of opportunities for suitably qualified people to deliver sports and other activities in the park.
At the moment, the group meets three times a week (Monday & Wednesday 10:00 – 13:00 and Saturday 10:00 – 15:00) but the days and session times will be extended later in the Summer when the new heritage centre and volunteer-led café open.
Regular volunteers can also access DBS checks, and training such as risk assessment, food safety L1, safeguarding children, mental health awareness, infection control and workplace health & safety. All tools are provided, and free refreshments at the end of each session.
