    Also, we are no longer charging for membership of Friends of Ruskin Park. This is because we want to encourage as many people as possible to take part in our activities, without any financial barrier. Of course we still need donations for our running costs and things like the paddling pool and other improvements we want to fund in the park, but giving time is as important as giving money. If anyone would like to join you can do so at

    Dear all,

    We will be ploughing up an area of the park in order to sow tall heritage wheat with shire horses, Heath and Nobby and ploughman Tom Nixon from Operation Centaur tomorrow morning, Friday starting around 11:30am. The wheat area is up the hill from the bandstand along the Ferndene Road side.

    I've got a post going up on Buzz tomorrow and have changed the times from the original press release. Hope it goes well!

    Hi everyone

    After two years of successfully running the paddling pool in Ruskin Park with the help of volunteers and a local business sponsor, we have a gap in funding again and need to raise at least £5,000 to cover costs in 2018 and 2019.

    Obviously this isn't an ideal long term solution, but if anyone is able to donate we have a Crowdfunder at

    Volunteers will be gathering for a campaign photo by the paddling pool (and our new mural on a neighbouring house) this Sunday at 11am if anyone wants to come along! We will do a big push after that on social media, etc.
