Volunteer Activities

At present no volunteer work is happening because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are considering when it would be safe to restart.

This update is on 17th June 2020.
This page about the volunteering activity was previously updated on 18th March 2020. It still does not seem possible to start any volunteer work yet. We are constantly reviewing the virus situation and government instructions. 

If you wish to be involved with the work on the Old Greenhouse/ Depot/ Nature Reserve site please contact the Friends of the Park at fhcp30@talktalk.net or via the contact page on this website. Below are some comments about this volunteer activity.

When you volunteer to help remember that this area has rough vegetation and rubbish. The area has broken glass and other sharp objects and is not suitable for children. You will need to bring some ordinary hand gardening tools as we have very little equipment. Wear sensible clothing and tough gloves and shoes.

If you wish to help then please let us know on fhcp30@talktalk.net or use the "contact us" page on this website. You do not need to be a member of the Friends of the Park.

There have been a series of sessions of work done by volunteers to improve the state of this area of land up until March 2020. At present the Liverpool City Council have not decided the future of this area. The Friends would like to be involved in this decision. We should like to know your suggestions as to its future. Please send your ideas to our email fhcp30@talktalk.net . 

        


 About Volunteering.

The Friends of Harthill and Calderstones Park volunteer group has been set up to help maintain the quality of the park by doing simple work which Street Scene is unable to find time to do. Our volunteer lead discusses with the management what could be usefully carried out. The work has to be suitable for using hand tools only and by persons of average fitness.

Volunteers work at a rate they feel comfortable with and there is no compulsion to complete the activity.

The Friends carry insurance for these activities.

Volunteers, at present, are requested to bring their own tools though a few are often available to borrow. It is hoped that in the future a small supply of tools will be purchased.

Volunteering is open to members of the Friends and members of the public. Just turn up at the appointed time (or later) and stay as long as you wish!

For further information and times of activities please contact us at fhcp30@talktalk.net
 

Come and have some exercise and fun whilst helping to improve our park.
