See a list of all the Greenspace groups in the district, with links to their website or Facebook page. Our definition of a green space group is that it enhances land for more than private benefit, on a voluntary basis.
Trustee opportunity: Lancaster Green Spaces is a registered charity and one of our trustees is standing down later in the year. We are therefore looking for someone who is interested in green space issues for the whole district. We have very few trustee meetings and the demands on trustees are few. Although public open space is under threat (as always), developments give opportunities to create new public spaces and enhance existing ones. If you would like to know more, please email Simon Gershon using this link
Volunteers needed: Lancaster Cemetery
Lancaster City Council Cemeteries Office manage Lancaster Cemetery on Quernmore Road, and in order to improve the site and services, we are looking to establish a Friends Group. It is a working cemetery with significant green space and many opportunities for gardening, encouraging our wildlife and wildflower, fundraising, and creating community spaces in our three unused on-site chapel buildings.
Volunteers of all abilities are welcome to assist our office in providing a peaceful, serene site and a place of remembrance whilst also preserving our heritage.
If you are interested in volunteering, would like more information or to meet for an informal chat, please contact the Cemeteries Officer Beth Aldridge on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01524 582635.
