Have a passion for Victoria Park?

SculptureWhy not get involved?
Friends of Victoria Park are looking for new committee members.

We are looking for people who would be able to commit to attending public meetings 4 times a year and additional committee meetings which are held every 1-2 months. These meetings are usually held in the evening.  We also organise various activities in the park throughout the year.
We are a friendly group of people and, whilst previous experience would be great, if you are interested and willing to learn, then we would welcome you on board. Please note that this is an unpaid voluntary role.

Unfortunately we can only recruit committee members who are over 18 years old but, if you are younger, then please contact us to see if we have other volunteering opportunities you may be able to help with.

To express an interest or find out more please contact us
