Kings' park - Involving the community

Community Involvement

A number of valuable projects have already been carried out by the group including the planting of over 2,000 snow drops next to the River Idle (Bridgegate) entrance to the park, wildlife projects, community litter picks and assisting with Xplorer sessions. The volunteers normally meet on a monthly basis and new members are always welcome to join the group.  If you are interested in helping then please see the information sheet contained on this webpage.
