We plan to enhance the experience of park and gardens users, by improving access and planting suitable shrubs and plants. In refurbishing the beds we will take into account climate change.

About this cause

The Friends of Lake Meadows is a small charity that helps to care for our local park, for the benefit of the local community, undertaking new projects to improve it and promoting wildlife. We work in close partnership with the Borough Council, who own the park, and we provide opportunities for volunteers, such as a weekly gardening group, monthly work party and manning of our information hut.

How this cause brings people in the community together

The park offers a safe place for exercise and mental wellbeing during Covid-19. People appreciate our work and frequently offer thanks and positive comments. Our gardening group adds value to the park and encourages community pride. We give opportunities for people to volunteer and they benefit socially, meeting others, some following bereavement, loneliness or ill-health.
