About this cause

We're a group that wants to maintain and enhance our local park, thus making it accessible to all and encouraging wildlife. The park has been a major benefit to all the people of Guiseley during the past year, with many finding us for the first time. It has provided a place for quiet reflection, to meet friends, to get outside in the local area and to take part in our Covid-secure events.

How this cause brings people in the community together

This would help young people to feel more engaged in their local environment, which can often become less as they become teenagers. It would help them to have respect for the park and its environs, assist with their mental health, and allow them to gain a new skill. We will also host an opening event for the area once ready, and hope to use an old tennis pavilion base to hold future events.
