This summer we want you to join us and help to breathe life into our parks across the city.

So whether you want to drop in and join a Tidy Up Tuesday, or sign up to be part of a Volunteer Work Party we'd love to welcome you to the team.

Tidy up Tuesdays

These are open volunteering events, running 10am-1pm with no need to book so everyone is welcome to come along and lend a hand to clean up our local park. We will provide the tools and equipment, but please wear appropriate clothing and footwear, and bring a pair of gardening gloves if you have them.

Volunteer Work Parties

Join Urban Green Newcastle and help us by clearing pathways, tending flowerbeds, repairing fences, or keeping the parks litter free. No previous experience is required, but a willingness to get stuck in and work as part of a team is essential.

 

We have events taking place across the summer in a number of our parks:
