Welcome to the online home of the Friends of Slaithwaite Spa!

Having been on an extended enforced hiatus throughout 2020 due to the Covid lockdowns, we are back! As before, our main aim for the remainder of 2021 is to recruit new volunteers to the ranks of the FoSS.

With various restorative projects underway, and recent progress already having been made, we are always on the lookout for anyone interested in helping out. The bulk of our work usually takes place the first Saturday of the month on our regular Working Party, between 10am and 12noon. All volunteers are welcome, please wear weather- and gardening-appropriate clothing. No tools necessary, we have them available in the park. We just need bodies to help with clearing leaves, weeding, planting, and other remedial work as required.

If you would like to help out, let us know by email or the Contact Us form linked above. Or just turn up at the Working Party and say hello to Colin or Keith, who will be recognisable in their bright green hi-viz vests marked up “Spa Park Volunteer”.

Our monthly formal meetings are yet to reconvene, though we are in the process of finding a new venue large enough to accommodate meetings and be social-distancing compliant. The date of the next upcoming meeting can be found under the Dates tab above and will be updated as soon as possible.

I hope some of you can come join us in caring for and maintaining this beautiful little park in the heart of Slaithwaite.

All the best,
Andy
