Corby's Friends of Groups

“Making a Difference to our Local Parks, Woodlands and Green Spaces”

A significant social asset within Corby Borough is the existing and emerging Friends of Groups.  The oldest of these, the Friends of East Carlton Park, has been running for 7 years and active groups have been established for all other sites, strongly supported by Corby Borough Council.  The Friends Of groups in Corby, all of which are dedicated to raising the standard and protecting their green spaces.

These new groups are currently engaged in clearing the accumulated litter and fly tipping from their respected sites, meeting once a month, to improve their general appearance and reduce negative perceptions.

Volunteering is an extremely rewarding experience with many social benefits and for dedicated volunteers we are able to provide free training opportunities through the Corby Woodland Project.  If you would like to volunteer complete this form and of our team will contact you.

The Friends of Thoroughsale and Hazelwood are committed to ensuring the woodland is a safe, welcoming and attractive site and have been involved in the Thoroughsale and Hazelwood Management Plan process since the beginning. In turn the Woodland Management Plan seeks to provide full support to the Friends of Group, ensuring that there are no barriers to new people joining this group.

If you wish to help us to improve your local woodland, please download the Friends Of booklet and contact the relevant group near you!
