Our green spaces are our green lungs, providing spaces for recreation and enjoyment, benefiting health, giving young people somewhere to go and young children somewhere safe to play.
But do they? Too many areas of our green spaces are unusable wastelands of litter-strewn gang-mown grass and cracked concrete, broken down toilets and locked play equipment, often overshadowed by anti-social behaviour.
You could help change that. Green spaces need local people to use them, wisely and often. By forming a group, you can help sort out what needs to be done, identify needs and priorities for local people of all ages and backgrounds, understand the challenges and the opportunities, and form a
practical partnership with your local authority.
