What do greenspace volunteers or Friends groups do?

Volunteer Groups

  • Volunteer groups are almost completely based around hands on practical tasks on site such as planting or litter picking.
  • They may be based at one site or roaming.
  • Groups are either self-led (with a strong input from Medway Council) or led by a Countryside Ranger.

Friends of Groups

  • Friends of groups are independent community groups who work in partnership with Medway Council to maintain, improve and promote their greenspace.
  • Friends groups provide a forum for discussing views about the park and shaping its future and can undertake a variety of activities from practical tasks within the park to organising events and activities and fundraising.
