We are volunteers with intentions to improve the appearance, facilities, conservation value and safety of our park for everybody. We currently have a formal meeting once monthly to discuss the work needed to achieve the goals, aims and objectives of Friends of Rolling Acres Park.
We aspire our group to become involved in projects (few named below) for the above to be achievable:
* Fundraising for new play equipment and improvements within the park
* To arrange activities for families and other park users to meet new friends
* Empowering park users to express their views about the management of the park.
* Practical workdays and tasks like litter picking and tree planting.
* Engagement with local police and Park patrols
We are working hard to progress and would welcome any help and support available, right now we need to gain more volunteers with a variety of knowledge and skill set. Unfortunately funding for the park is extremely limited and therefore we have decided that we shall take responsibility to fundraise to improve this space ourselves for the benefit of the community.
Our park is lacking in play equipment for children of all ages so we are going to use any funding raised to help buy new equipment. We want to make the park a welcoming sanctuary for all children and adults to play and have fun. We feel that by improving our park it will help adults and children with their physical and mental well-being which is more important than ever after lockdown.
We are delighted to announce that we are now affiliated with “Beighton Community Partnership” meaning that we are linked to the charity allowing us to fundraise and accept donations. We would appreciate it if everybody could promote our efforts and achievements by adding and sharing the Rolling Acres Park profile on social media.
Thank you for reading about our group, your time is much appreciated, Friends of Rolling Acres”
