Welcome to the Friends of Broadhurst Park Conmunity 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.

We hold free events during the Summer months, previous events include our annual Festival, a wild flower identification workshop, bug hunting, bat and fungi walks

Coming up we have our annual Summer Festival

Broadhurst Summer Festival 5th August 2018

Advert for Broadhurst FestivalWe have  traditional craft workshops, fun rides and a wide range of attractions for all ages. There’ will be  something for everyone, from activity-based attractions to traditional fairground games. We also have  the popular Crocodile Joe’s interactive educational show, hands on Virtual Reality, a  brass band and much more.

  • We also carry out conservation work in the Park; for example  we have spent scores of  hours tackling Himalayan Balsam (an alien invasive species) plus Litter picks and putting up bird boxes. We’ve also planted wild plants and 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.
