FRIENDS groups have already played a crucial role in helping to reinvigorate two of Huddersfield’s biggest parks.
Now a new group is determined to back another of the town’s open spaces, this time at Moldgreen.
The Friends of Tolson Museum and Ravensknowle Park say they will work with staff at the museum to promote the facilities and get more people to visit.
People with a passion for our parks and museums have been key in driving renovations at both Greenhead Park and Beaumont Park and promoting both as great community spaces.
News of a Kirklees Council decision to close the Tolson Museum for two days of the week during the winter months in order to save costs is disappointing news then for the new group.
But it aims to go ahead with efforts to get more people into the park and through the museum doors which is vital to stem any further closures.
The group is also focused on building a new memorial garden to honour servicemen from Huddersfield who have died in conflicts since 1945.
The garden project and plans to promote the park’s existing facilities to a wider audience are surely the foundations for a long lasting legacy, one of which founder Leigh Tolson would have been proud.
Join the Friends and ensure the museum and park are maintained and supported for future generations to enjoy.
