Friends of the Lake District – Our Green Heritage

Support us from £3/month

We deal with almost 1000 cases a year assisting communities, groups and individuals in protecting their local spaces and paths in all parts of England and Wales. Can you help us by joining as a member?

Friends of the Lake District are offering a new opportunity for communities to take part and receive dedicated help for their green space.

They are inviting communities to participate in a 3 year funded project focusing on local heritage green space. This is a follow on to the highly successful Our Green Space project.

What would your community like to do?

. Repair historic features such as a maypole, well or stone wall boundaries

. You have a project in mind but you don’t have the funding to do it

. Develop and implement a management plan for the green spaces

. Better understand what you can or cannot do

. Create a wildlife area or pond

. Involve the local school in activities on the green space

. Re-create community celebrations and festivals

. Involve community volunteers

. Research the history of your local green space, community and cultural heritage

. Receive training and support to allow plans to come to fruition
