Short Heath Playing Fields and Bleak Hill Park (Friends of)
The Friends of Short Heath Playing Fields and Bleak Hill Park are made up of a team of regulars and part-time volunteers that are committed to looking after and saving their local green space. The group want to carry on bringing the word “together” back into their community, turning Short Heath Playing Fields back into a sports field for all, and Bleak Hill Park into a lasting nature reserve to be proud of and as a source of education and inspiration for current and future generations.
The group are currently working with local schools and the council to turn part of Bleak Hill Park into a covid Memorial Woodland and nature reserve. They host an annual Halloween fancy dress competition and pumpkin hunt.
“The Short Heath Wombles” are an over 50’s sub-group that litter pick the site for exercise and companionship, which we are looking to grow. The group have just secured funding for this and also a junior Womble team (5 to 50 yrs.)
