Friends of Groups

If you prefer your exercise to have more of a purpose why not consider joining a 'Friends of Group'?  The Council is working in a number of areas to create these groups; their aim is to give people some influence over how their local open space is developed and to encourage practical help in maintaining the parks, green spaces and nature reserves.  Like gardening at home, practical work in a park or green space is good exercise but doing it in a group means you also get the chance to meet new people as well.  For more details about Friends of Groups please contact 0115 901 3621.
