Get more involved in the Friends of Ruskin Park

We’re currently looking for people to join the committee or take on a regular role.

The main thing we’re looking for is people who care about the park! More specifically, we’re looking for any of the following:

  • People to take a general interest in the management of the park, who can listen to other park users and build good relationships with parks officers.
  • People who can help push forward an element of the strategic masterplan, involving other park users and the wider community.
  • A volunteer with general IT skills who can handle administration of donations and/or memberships.
  • A volunteer with more advanced IT or web development skills to help manage our WordPress-based website.

Our committee meetings take place every 6 to 8 weeks, usually on a Monday or Tuesday evening at 7.30pm, but we’re looking for people who can give a little time each week to keep involved.

However, we’re also interested if you can help on a regular basis but don’t want to join the committee.

Email to find out more or to arrange a chat.
