About The Friends

As a group, we cooperate with each individual member, giving advice on site issues whilst liaising with police. We are extremely proactive with practical conservation based activities. Acting as ambassadors for the park, the group proves an invaluable link between the Carlisle City Council and the community.

Aims of Friends

  • To work in partnership with Carlisle City Council and other agencies for the overall benefit of the park. By working towards the Centenary Commemoration of World War One in 2014 and beyond, Friends strive to contribute to the good work being carried out.
  • To raise awareness and promote Rickerby Park as a quality green space in Carlisle and keeping the prestigious Green Flag status.
    To encourage the community to play a proactive role in the management of the Park, through practical activities and events.
  • To represent the interests of the community in planning and implementing projects and applying for external funding to fulfil the groups objectives.
