This Saturday we will be taking part in #GBSpringClean, helping to make our local spaces tidier and safer places. We'd love it if you could come along to join our family friendly spring walk around the Dene and help us litter pick along the way!
For the last year our Denton Dene Warriors project (supported by Community Foundation of Tyne & Wear and Ninevah Charitable Trust) has been working with local schools and families to encourage more people to visit and care for the beautiful wildlife haven. So far over 300 children have enjoyed free educational trips to the Dene and over 250 people have attended community events in the Dene.
The next stage of our plan is to launch a new Friends of Denton Dene Group, who will liaise with the new Newcastle Parks Trust to help care for the Dene and be involved in decisions about what happens there. The first Friends of Denton Dene meeting will happen this Saturday at 12.00 after the Great British Spring Clean event. If you'd like to get involved please come along - see flyer for details. If you'd like to find out more or offer support please contact Nicky firstname.lastname@example.org or 0191 200 4706.
