"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.

Further events in 2020 to be advised.
Sunday 5th July, Brickfields Country Park - Fun Day. -
Update 1/06/2020 - Due to continuing restrictions on public events with the Covid–19 pandemic we have had to take the decision to cancel this year's Funday that had been scheduled for the 5th July.
The Government are starting to ease restrictions but it's very unlikely that they will ease enough for us to hold the event, however should they do so in the next few days, there is now unfortunately not enough time to make the necessary arrangements to hold the event in a safe socially distanced manner.
We are sorry to have to do this but the public's safety is our paramount concern. We thank you all for your support for this local community event over previous years. Stay well and keep safe.
Our 2019 sponsors were –
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.
