Get involved with your local green space

A local group that works hard to look after one of Blaby district’s major green spaces is looking to recruit more helpers.

The Friends of Fosse Meadows works alongside Blaby District Council to preserve and maintain the unique environment of FosseMeadowsNaturePark, near Sharnford.

Volunteers will get to be part of a team of dedicated workers with local interests at heart, take an active role in developmental work with the Meadows and help to fundraise.

Councillor David Clements, Corporate Services, Performance and Leisure portfolio holder at Blaby District Council, said:

“The Friends of Fosse Meadows group help us to maintain and improve Fosse Meadows, which is one of the Council’s strategic green spaces.

“We support the volunteers by helping them to plan work, provide them with equipment and give them advice. It’s great to see people giving up their spare time to help out and I hope to see many more get involved.”

The Fosse Meadows site has extensive paths through flower meadows and woodlands. It is a good area for bird spotting, with a wildlife lake and bird hide.

If you would like to get involved with the Friends of Fosse Meadows or would like to volunteer at other green space sites please email or call 0116 2727647.
