Friends of Balgay
Friends of Balgay is a community group formed to promote and protect the beautiful open green spaces and wooded areas of Greater Balgay. The members have been working as a group for many years, promoting the park and improving the visitor experience. Its aim is to have a park which meets the diverse needs of all the community while safeguarding the habitats of the wildlife. The group will provide a voice for the local community and work closely with the local authority on ongoing projects. It holds regular meetings within the observatory for its members which are open to the public. The group’s current project, with help of local funding, is the upgrade of the historic pavilion/bandstand with new plants, paint and seating. The group also holds litter picks to try and keep the park as litter free as possible.
