Thank you for continuing to support our events.
The opening of the bandstand was well attended until the rain came down half way through, but we still raised £620 for Bury Hospice.
We also held the Annual Lantern Parade which again was succesful
The next event is the Annual Seasonal Craft activities for children. Details are on the events page.
In 2024, we hope to put a varied selection of bands and music groups on the bandstand.
There is also a planned 2 day festival on the 20th and 21st July across Ramsbottom, including Nuttall Park.
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 mainly promote our events via our Facebook Page.
We are always looking for new volunteers - contact us
Friends of Nuttall Park volunteers get involved in many ways ; Some of the volunteers help with most of the activities, and some only want to be involved with one activity.
- 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 and toilets are open on Saturday and Sunday, times vary according to volunteers, but is usuallly 11:00 - 3:00.
- 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 are held to provide a community day out. Extra volunteers are required for these events.
We have decided that we will not be hiring out the base in 2024.
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.
