Description

Come and join us at our regional conference.

Open to members of Friends Groups, Gardens Trusts, Heritage, Civic and Conservation Societies, and park professionals from throughout the North West, anyone involved in campaigning for adequate funding to preserve and enhance parks and green spaces will be more than welcome.

There will be a series of presentations from leading parks champions including:

- Paul Rabbits (parks manager, author and bandstand aficionado)

- Katy Layton-Jones (cultural historian and landscape heritage consultant)

- Jamie Leeson (Fields in Trust)

- Dave Morris (Chair, National Federation of Parks and Green Spaces)

with workshops providing an opportunity for active participation in how to strengthen the role of Friends Groups, to enable them to demonstrate the widespread benefits of public parks, to campaign for effective funding, and to influence national and local policy.

This will be a free event: lunch and refreshments will also be available.
