Friends of Quarry Park

We are a local group of residents who help to keep our little park attractive and pleasant for everyone to view and use. As an independent group of volunteers we are able to bid for funds to improve the park. Past improvements have included relaying the footpath around the Park, new seats and bins and new planting.

We have recently been successful in securing a grant from the Council’s Neighbourhood Fund for tree pruning and planting over the next two years.

This year’s Annual Tea Party will be held on Saturday 2nd July 2022 from 2pm to 4pm.
