Natural Kirklees and the Parks and Greenspaces Team at Kirklees Council are hosting a special Summer Gala for groups who are involved in parks and green spaces in Kirklees. It’s a great opportunity to meet local environmental groups and there are lots of fun activities to try, both in the event marquee and around the park.

Join us in Greenhead Park on Sunday 12th August to meet lots of community groups, learn about what they do and take part in fun activities including: go on a mini bug hunt and find out the ideal lunch for a duck with River Holme Connections, learn about Clem’s Garden who work together to grow and sell flowers, supporting local charities and community projects with their profits, browse the Support to Recovery (S2R) plant stall, join in the Big Butterfly Count around the park, or create a piece of artwork using natural materials with Growing Works.

Growing Newsome will be there with plenty of home made treats, made from fruit and vegetables that have been grown in Newsome and donated by our generous volunteers and friends. Please come and visit us in the marquee on the event field near the top of the park (just across from the miniature train tracks). Our stall is open from 1pm to 4pm.

Music – Enjoy the sound of brass in the great outdoors with Slaithwaite Band. They will be performing on the Greenhead Park bandstand from 2pm to 4pm as part of a programme of concerts organised by the Friends of Greenhead Park. Limited seating is available and you are welcome to bring your own folding chairs or rugs.  Free – there will be a collection in aid of the Friends of Greenhead Park. There will also be music from the Ukulele Band in the marquee.

Refreshments – The Friends of Greenhead Park will be serving tea and cakes throughout the afternoon in the marquee – and running a craft building extravaganza.

We hope to see you there.
