A new Friends of St John's Gardens group has been formed, with its inaugural AGM to be held on Thursday 30 January, 6.30 pm - 8.00 pm, at the Castlefield Hotel.
The purpose of the group is in line with MCC guidelines for 'Friends Of' groups for parks - to create a strategy or plan for St John's Gardens/park in line with what the local community wants - encouraging volunteering (e.g. litter picking/tidy-ups), good environmental practice (encourage wildlife) and secure additional funding (applying for grants).
It is very much to encourage local residents and users of the park to help secure the future of the park as a space that respects its heritage and what local users want. The group will have a constitution, elected Chair, Treasurer and Secretary.
Please feel free to go along to find out more.
