Williamson Park seeks friends

Chris Satori
Lancaster City Council is inviting you to become a Friend of Williamson Park. Does Williamson Park hold a special place in your heart? If so, perhaps you’d like to be involved in making it a memorable place to be for others too! The Friends of Williamson Park Group has already been running a number of years and has been successful in raising funds for new facilities and encouraging hundreds of people to benefit from them.

Having lost a number of members due to other commitments the friends group is being re-launched and is on the look out for new members who will be keen to work with the council to develop a ten year plan for the park.

There are a number of specific roles in the group that are currently vacant but general members are also needed to join the meetings and get involved. Members can give as little or as much time to the park as they wish and the type of work they do is entirely up to the individual. This may include environmental or educational projects, preserving the heritage, fundraising or just being kept up-to-date on progress made.

Anyone who is interested in joining the Friends of Williamson Park Group should contact Sharon Wilson, Promenade and Outdoor Facilities Manager on 01524 582847 or send an email to
