Green-Fingered Friends of Duke Street Park

A number of garden enthusiasts have been making their mark on the local area.

Eight volunteers have joined forces to create a new Friends of Duke Street Park group in Formby.

Working together with Sefton Council’s parks and greenspaces service, the group are helping to make improvements to the park and continue the work that was started by the garden volunteers at the park.

In the last 12 months, the popular attraction in Formby has had new trees planted, a multi-use games area installed courtesy of local funding, and a unique wooden carving created on-site. The park has now been nominated for a national Green Flag award which recognises the high-standards of outdoor spaces.

Regular events take place throughout the year, including the Formby Festival in July – a three-day extravaganza of food, music and drink as well things for all the family. 

The Friends of Duke Street Park meet monthly at Formby Library and new members are always welcome. In addition, the garden volunteers continue to meet on the first Thursday of each month to look after the rose garden and new volunteers will be given information and support.

For more information on how to get involved please contact parks@sefton.gov.uk or 0151 934 2421.
