Friends of Parr Fold Park
This inclusive voluntary group was set up in 2014 to enhance Parr Fold Park. They have 30 diverse volunteers who attend several sessions a week to help maintain the park and their work has culminated in Parr Fold Park being awarded Green Flag status. The group also runs events throughout the year and has replaced and rededicated a memorial plaque in the park.
The other finalists were:
This group meets several times a week to maintain Wardley Park and surrounding areas. They have planted beautiful plants, trees and shrubs and created an amazing community garden for the people of Wardley. They have also campaigned and fundraised for the children’s play area, new paths, and a picnic area and have created a truly fantastic community spirit by holding events through the year.
Chris has created his own community garden on Edmund Street in Langworthy. Having recruited friends and neighbours, he worked to remove rubbish and cutback overgrowth at a disused plot and has created a wonderful growing space with colourful flowers, shrubs, fruit, and trees.

Working with the school community, Carol has created a litter picking group that goes out on Friday mornings and cleans the school grounds and surrounding areas.
