Our Groups

The Friends enjoy working together in various activities across the park and are welcome to join any of our specialist groups. These groups are open to all; none of us are experts, we are just genuinely interested in these things and to be honest some of us didn't know we were interested until we took a deep breath, joined in and were carried along by the enthusiasm of others.   New talents,  skills and passions have been found and friendships forged along the way For more information about any of our groups, click the picture. 

If you don't see an activity here and would like to set up a new group let us know!
