People who use Farnley Hall Park are being urged to attend the latest public meeting to formally set up a group to help improve and maintain it.

As WLD reported last month, a public meeting at Farnley Hall agreed in principle to set up the new Friends of Farnley Hall Park group, which will carry out practical work such as weeding, pruning and litter picking, as well as protecting the heritage of the parkland and have a say in how it is managed.

The next meeting will be to form an interim committee, which will require three named officers – chair, treasurer and secretary – as well as others.

The Friends group is the idea of Councillor Ann Forsaith (Green, Farnley & Wortley) and follows the successful launch of a similar group for Western Flatts Park in Wortley last year.

Cllr Forsaith said: “During the meeting we will be able to discuss the aims of the group and the sort of activities people might want to get involved in. So I do hope that many of the people who love Farnley Hall Park will want to come along to help set up this new group. 

“As this meeting will be to set up the committee, I am hoping that volunteers for the officer positions and for the committee as a whole will come forward. If you, or anyone you know would like to discuss these roles, I can be contacted on 07891 220192.”

The meeting will be held at 6pm on 24 August at New Farnley Community Centre. All welcome to attend.
