    Welcome to Friends of Centre Vale Park

    The aims of the Friends of Centre Vale Park group volunteers are to protect, improve, promote and enhance Centre Vale Park.

    Activities include hands on projects such as woodland management, planting initiatives and path improvements as well as the planning and promotion of projects such as the development of the parks facilities through fundraising and public awareness.

    We help ensure the park is well maintained and raise and monitor any issues that arise with the Local Authority staff who oversee the park.

    We hold monthly meetings to discuss future events and planning, review the effectiveness of past activities and organise work for volunteer days (usually twice per month).

    Please access all the pages within the website using the tabs at the top to discover more about what we do and how you can volunteer, plus details of how you can explore the heritage trail.

     Join us on a guided Family Trail Walk: Birds Walk, Heritage Walk or Wildlife Walk.

     The Birds Walk on Sunday 7 April was very successful.

    Bird Walk 7.4.19 2

    With ages ranging from 5 to 75, eighteen people joined in. Split into two groups time was spent identifying birds by sight and sound.

    Notable was hearing the ChiffChaff returned from its winter migration to North Africa, seeing a pair of Treecreepers, watching an active Nuthatch nesting hole, a Buzzard soaring overhead, and to top it off a rarely seen Red Kite drifting across the valley:
