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,
Coming Up- Bat Walk 29th June 2019 – see our Events page
Previous events include our annual Festival, a wild flower identification workshop, bug hunting, bat and fungi walks 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 at firstname.lastname@example.org
Children and parents came to our Pond Dipping and Bug Hunt in May. In spite of the rain, they had fun and found tadpoles and all sorts of water creatures
Thanks to all the volunteers who collected 30 bags of refuse from the playing fields in March
and sowed wild flower seeds in the Clough in February
