The Friends of Fishponds aim to improve the park for the local community. We work to maintain and enhance this much loved space through volunteering and sharing information about the park, its history and wildlife.

We do this by:  
  • Improving the park and protecting and developing its range of wildlife habitats through regular action days and volunteering sessions.  
  • Collaborating with the council and its contractors to share information and coordinate activities. We also collate local people's feedback on park issues and share this to resolve problems. 
  • Using our social media and emails to inform and educate people about the park and local wildlife, we also promote relevant environmental messages. 
  • Promoting the fun, safe and healthy use of the park and actively discourage antisocial behaviour in the park.  
  • Working with partners such as Voices of Hope and Citizen Zoo to organise or promote volunteer maintenance and gardening sessions in the park. 
We were established in 2018 and are formed of a management committee and wider membership. To join the group email You can also get involved by simply coming along to one of our volunteer Action Days - all are welcome!
