Welcome to the Friends of Broadhurst website.  We are a local community group, Our aims are to preserve the green open spaces of Broadhurst Fields and protect them from further development. We want to encourage people to visit the Park and learn about its biodiversity and history.

  1. We hold free Events during the Summer months, previous events include annual Festivals, a wild flower identification workshop, bug hunting, bat and fungi walks (see Events page).

  • We also carry out conservation work in the Park; for example  we have spent over 33 hours tackling Himalayan Balsam (an alien invasive species) plus Litter picks and putting up bird boxes. We’ve also cleared drainage channels to help feed the wetland areas in Broadhurst Clough
  • We always welcome new volunteers.  If you would like to join us please get in touch with us through the contact form on the website.
