Friends of Strawberry Valley Park

A ‘Friends of Strawberry Valley Park Group’ was set up in July 2020, on a quest to revitalise the green space just off Bent Lane in Leyland.

The Friends Group has been busy trying to raise funds in order to get a playground installed for the children in the area. Children need outdoor play – it’s vital for both their physical health and mental health. The group is on a mission to turn the green space (Strawberry Valley Park) on Bent Lane into something special for everyone to enjoy.

What we do:

As well as children, we want to make this a nice environment for the residents on Wrights Fold - and a nature area and benches would do just that. Nature areas obviously will attract wildlife, like bees, too. This project ticks all the boxes - we could turn this space into something really special. Hundreds of bulbs have been planted by children from a pre-school just down the road from the park. We have planted wild strawberry plants (a nod to the parks new name) and buddleias are being planted next, as well as two trees. The project has the full support of the local councillors, the community, South Ribble Borough Council’s Neighbourhood Team, the Leyland Forum and even the local MP, who’s chipped in with some donated saplings.
