WHO ARE THE FRIENDS OF ULLEY COUNTRY PARK

The Friends of Ulley Country Park is a voluntary organisation working in partnership with Rotherham Council, the owners of the Park, to protect and enhance the natural environment in the Park.

Membership of the Friends group is open to everyone and is now well over 250. We have provided significant financial support to the Rangers team at Ulley since the group was founded in 2006 and continue to work positively towards ensuring the facilities in the Park are improved and maintained for the enjoyment of all visitors.

The elected Committee meets monthly at the Visitors Centre, with the Council’s Rangers Green Spaces team, to discuss the Friends activities and proposals for projects to be implemented in the Park. As a voluntary group, the Friends have successfully applied for grant funding to enable additional resources for various projects in the Park.

The Friends hold a monthly Café Day in the Visitors Centre, generally on the third Sunday of the month, to encourage visitors to the Park and raise vital funds for carrying out improvements in the Park.

Two newsletters are also usually circulated to members each year, in Spring and Autumn, giving details of the Friends activities and projects being  implemented in the Park

The Aims of the Friends group are set out in the constitution and are summarised as follows:-

  • To protect and enhance the Park, its amenities and its heritage

  • To work in partnership with Rotherham Borough Council

  • To promote further development through grant funding and volunteering
