"Come along and see us"
FBCP welcome involvement from the public as occasional volunteers or members. Work parties are usually held in the park on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month (except January) from 1:30pm onwards (12:30 in the winter, see below), but do check with the task date calendar below first as some work dates do change. We meet in the centre of the park at our storage container. No special skills are needed, just some strong footwear! and a willingness to contribute to your environment. The work covers many topics from pond clearance to path building and more, we are insured for public liability, tools and refreshments are provided and safety is covered before starting.

We must again thank our sponsors for their continued help, as without the help of our local businesses and organisations we would at times be unable to do some of our work in the park and to stage events like the Fun Day. Our grateful thanks go to them.
