Call goes out for Peasholm volunteers

The volunteers who help to look after Scarborough's Peasholm Park are calling on local people to share their love of the popular green space by lending a hand.

The Friends of Peasholm Park are holding an open meeting on Tuesday 22 March at 7pm at Ebenezer Church Hall, Columbus Ravine. They would like to meet people who have ideas to share about the future of the park and Peasholm Glen and to find more volunteers to help look after the park for future generations.

Volunteer jobs range from litter picking to helping to developing a tree warden scheme to preserve its rare and champion trees and shrub.

Sheila Johnson, of Scarborough Borough Council's community environment team, said: “Everyone loves Peasholm Park. It may be the perfect place for exercise, for a quiet stroll, to feed the ducks or to listen to a band on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Generations of Scarborough folk have so many happy memories of it, so we’re asking those interested in helping to keep it wonderful for future generations to come forward.

“Volunteering is a great way to give something back to your community. You can choose where and when you give your time and fit it around your family and lifestyle. Best of all, it's a great way to make new friends who share the same ideals.”
