Whether you’re a dog walker, a parent/carer of children who use the playground, you enjoy playing sports or riding bikes around the park, you can help.
Everyone has a skill we can use, regardless of experience, availability or mobility. Many of the tasks can be done at home in your own time and you don’t need to attend our meetings unless you want to. Age isn’t a barrier either we have children, adults and older people who help, everyone is welcome.
So it doesn’t matter if you can only give the odd hour now and then; if you can offer some time regularly; or if you have such a passion you want to spend every spare minute helping!
Why should you get involved?
It’s a great way to meet new people, improve your health and wellbeing and of course the local environment. It will also give you the feel good factor of doing something to help your local community too. So what’s stopping you from getting involved?
“I started helping a year ago on a placement from my gardening course at Capel Manor. I enjoyed it so much I have been coming ever since!” Christie (aged 24)
