Welcome to The Friends of Harthill and Calderstones Park web site.

The Friends of Harthill and Calderstones Park aim to promote the use of the park.

We purchase items to enhance the park.

We hold talks aimed at entertaining and informing members about parks, gardens and related subjects. These meetings are open to members of the public and a donation is requested.

Members are kept up to date about matters concerning the park.

Our contact email address is fhcp30@talktalk.net  

Result of the appeal by Liverpool City Council against LOGS concerning the Judicial Review which prevented the building of houses on a part of Harthill and Calderstones Park.

The Court of Appeal has upheld Mr Justice Kerr's judgment of 18th January 2019 quashing planning permission for the Redrow housing scheme at Calderstones Park. However, the additional protection given to the Green Wedge at the JR, has not been upheld. You can see the full report on the LOGS website www.logscic.org.uk

Funding grant awarded for the proposed Nature Reserve.

A grant of £20K has been awarded to the Friends by the Postcode Lottery Trust which is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People's Postcode Lottery.

Notice from the Reader Organisation

We are pleased to show the announcement below from The Reader Organisation, at their request:-

"The Reader is offering people in L16, L18, L25 the chance to connect and have a chat on the phone with one of our friendly volunteers during this crisis. If you sign up someone will simply call you each week, at a suitable time, share a poem with you and have a conversation. If you have memories of Calderstones or The Mansion House, we’d also be really happy to chat to you about those. 
"If you or someone you know could benefit from this, you can give The Reader a call 0151 729 2250 or email coronavirus@thereader.org.uk and you’ll be partnered with a friendly volunteer."
