What is the Open Spaces Forum?

The Open spaces Forum is a Cambridgeshire and Peterborough forum that connects volunteers, friends of groups, charities and parish councils with a shared interest in working together to develop, manage and maintain parks and open spaces.

Who is this for?

Anyone who volunteers or carries out unpaid work in parks and green open spaces or has an interest in becoming involved in Green Spaces.

Why would I want to come?

Meetings enable communication, information sharing and news relating to parks and open spaces, volunteering, opportunities for collaboration, funding, local and national updates. 

Meetings may identify areas of common interest and need and will provide learning opportunities, sharing good practices, mentoring and networking between groups.

This event is a partnership between Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Parks Partnership and Support Cambridgeshire. If you would like to know more about this offer or join our mailing list to find out about future events, please email:
