Hyndburn Green Spaces Forum was established in 2005 by four Community, not for profit groups, coming together who believed that free access to good quality open space and leisure facilities could contribute to the social health and wellbeing of local residents. We became an ENTRUST – environmental registered body in 2005. Working with local residents on a variety of projects that were important to them (playgrounds, sensory gardens, and woodlands) our ranks increased as more community groups where formed and joined the forum so that they too could make a difference in their area. On the 3rd of February 2012 we became a registered charity. Charity no.1145700. We are completely run by volunteers made up of local residents. We have the full support of the Local Authority with our own Parks Liaison Officer. This project is one that came to the forum from the Hyndburn Parents and Carers Group when it became too big for them to take forward.
