"I have been a Friend of the Park for years now and I really enjoy working with the group in my local park. I feel like I am giving something back to my community."
"Being a Friend of the Park has helped me meet new people and get to know others in my area"
"Taking part in the practical work day sessions has really made a difference to my health - I feel fitter and healthier"
"I always wanted to do some volunteering but found it hard to find to commit to anything as I work long hours. This suits me perfectly as I only have to attend a work session once a month and I can still make a difference."
"I really like gardening and I love going to my local park so being a Park Friend was perfect for me."
