Call for Volunteers

Leicester City Council is calling on people of all ages and from all walks of life to roll their sleeves up and get involved in helping maintenance, cleaning and improvement works.

As well as joining forces with the council's parks services teams to carry out the work, helpers will also be able to train to become Green Hat volunteers, who lead other volunteers in regular clean-up and planting days.

For further details of Park Force Volunteers contact 0116 454 1003
