Updated 13th January

We have decided that we will not be hiring out the base in 2022. This is partly due to the small space available, and partly because the Tea Room is open on weekends subject to volumteers being available. If you would like to volunteer, please contact us.

Who we are

The Friends of Nuttall Park are a group of volunteers who help to keep the park tidy and through raising funds improve the park by adding playground equipment and plants.

We are always looking for new volunteers - contact us

Friends of Nuttall Park volunteers get involved in many ways

The Gardening Group meets on Tuesday afternoons 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. March to November to tend for flowerbeds and the wildflower patch, as well as general tidying of the park.

The Tea Room is open for takeaway only on most weekends from April, and provides an income for the group. Look out for the signs

The toilets are opened when the base is open, and at other times when volunteers are available.

Task Days are held throughout the year, when a number of volunteers meet to clear balsam, paint and clean the furniture in the park, tidy leaves, e.t.c.

Events such as the Lantern Parade and Easter Fun Hunt are held to provide a community day out. Extra volunteers are required for these events.

    

Some of the volunteers help with most of the activities, and some only want to be involved with one activity.

We welcome extra volunteers who are prepared to help with any of the above activities. Please contact us if you can spare some time to improve the park

Hiring the Base

We have decided that we are no longer hiring the base out.
