The Friends of Cale Green Park is really a subgroup of the Cale Green Park Residents Association. We look after anything to do with Cale Green Park, Bell's Paddock and Kevin's Corner... Don't know where Kevin's Corner is? Click on the "About Us" above to see a map of its location.
We have received grants from Greenspace, the Community Foundation for Greater Manchester (Grassroots Fund), Impact, Stockport MBC Area Flexibility Fund and Community First. The group has also achieved the Community Foundations Quality Standard for Funding.
In early November, we applied to the "Catalyst Grants for Social Movement" programme to pay for the Christmas 2016 event. It was a long shot, as we were having the event on the 4th of December, and the panel wasn't meeting until later in December to make the awards. Normally, sponsors want to see their names on the posters advertising the event, so we didn't think we'd get anything... But the good news is that they awarded us £850!! Thank you, Action Together*!
