Goals


The Friends of Cale Green Park has the following aims and objectives: • To encourage wider use of the Park by all sections of the local community • To protect, create, develop and improve Cale Green Park and Bell’s Paddock • To maintain the high standards of the Park and its facilities • To stimulate public interest and engender a sense of civic pride in the beauty, history and character of the Park • To promote sustainable practice and policy so as to enhance the biodiversity of the Park

What We Do

The Friends of Cale Green Park originally had three events each year: the Easter Monday Farmers Market, the summer event, and the Christmas event. But organizing the Farmers Market was too complicated, so we stopped having one in 2014.

All our events are free and as a result, they are an ideal opportunity for the community to get together and talk to one another. In addition to the entertainment, we also provide homemade cakes and tea/coffee from the community room, crafts made by the local residents, and of course, a raffle to support future events and bulb plantings in the park.

Over the years, the entertainment has included Crazy Tramps, Rock Back the Clock, Stockport Silver Band, Elmfield Brass Band, Rudolf the Rodeo Reindeer, Egerton Park Arts College Samba Band, Annie's Saints & Sinners (jazz band), Shuttlers' Clog Dancers, St George's Hand Bell Ringers, the Falconry Centre (Hagley), the Loose Change band and Amazing Stephen [children's magician].

If you have any ideas for our park events, we would love to hear from you. If you would like a stall at one of our events, please contact us at least 4 months before the event.
