FRIENDS OF LOCKE PARK

Who we are

A group of friendly people who act as a hub for Locke Park in organising visits to Locke Park Tower the highest point in Barnsley, major events, car boot sales and we help other organisations to arrange events. We promote the Park Run and other forms of fitness. We consider everyone in our community and try to do something for everyone. We have a keen gardening section who are helping to improve the gardens together with Barnsley Biodiversity Trust who are helping to provide for wildlife. We work with local schools promoting their local heritage and their surroundings.
