Health in Parks Conference

FoSP members today attended a conference in Leeds about the links between health and wellbeing and parks and green spaces.

FoSP has long recognised these links and it was great to have things confirmed by experts in this field. It was also good to make links with individuals from across the north of England.

Well done to all – especially the volunteers who continue to keep making this happen.

Crowd Funding Launched

We are purchasing a swing that is suitable for the less able and the Tesco ‘Bags of Help’ fund is funding most of it with an award of £4,800. We have found a rather nice swing that a little more expensive but worth the extra money.

To bridge the funding gap of £800 we have started a crowd funding page for supporters to make donations. You can view it by CLICKING HERE.

Our thanks in advance for your support,
