How to get involved as a green space volunteer

Cheltenham's green space volunteers are groups of people who want to make a difference to the community they live in, and some even like to travel to different parts of Cheltenham to get involved with improving those communities too.

A number of Cheltenham's parks have 'friends of' groups and always welcome new members. If you are interested in becoming a member of a particular group, please view the page for the park you like.

The green space volunteers carry out a range of tasks from litter picking individually and in groups to working alongside the ranger at an organised working party.

  • Friends of Pilley Bridge Local Nature Reserve: first Saturday of the month, 10.30am till12.30pm
