    Hi I have just found this on the Sandwell Council of Voluntary Organisations website – could you invite them to volunteer to help the park? The deadline is 30th March to ask for help.

    WANTED – Opportunities For Teams Of Volunteers
    Would you like a team of willing volunteers for one day?
    Sandwell Council and encouraging teams of their staff to come forward and volunteer for the day on Wednesday 16 May 2012. They are looking for a wide range of projects for the volunteers to take part in. Activities could be indoors or outdoors and ideally should require at least 6-8 people. The types of project to be supported could be:-
    • Tidying up your outside space
    • Helping to create a garden
    • Painting
    • Giving a room a one off makeover
    • Work in a park

    These are just a few examples and Sandwell Council would really like to hear how these volunteers could help your organisation. If you need an extra pair of hands and can accommodate a small group of volunteers on the 16 May, please contact Heather Chinner to discuss further – or 0121 569 3020 by 30 March 2012.

    Thanks Gina

    Dear Mark and Aline,
    I have only just seen your repsonse to the friends group meeting invite – apologies for this. The answer to your question is most definitely yes. We welcome any people interested in Lightwoods Park to get involved. Please keep yourselves updated – there are regular updates about Lightwoods Park posted on the blog, and there is also a Friends of Lightwoods Park and House group which you can join for more updates.
    Kind regards,
