Also known as: FoSGP

Contact Details


The Friends of St George's Park is a constituted community group that has been in existence since 2008. The group meets monthly to organise regular work parties to undertake activities such as weeding, tidying borders, planting and litter picking in the park. FoSGP works in partnership with Wyre Forest District Council (WFDC) to improve and develop our urban green space for the benefit of the community and wildlife. We have agreed with our WFDC partners that no herbicides/weedkillers will be used in the park where the partnership has planted fruit trees and other food crops in our aim to make the park more 'edible' and part of the local food network.
Our aim is to maximise the value of our urban green space for the physical and emotional wellbeing of park users and as a location for 'green therapy' as part of the wider therapeutic horticulture/ecotherapy movement.

We also organise community events in St George's Park such as our annual St George's Family Fun Day each April on or around St George's Day. This event won Wyre Forest District Council Community Event of the Year 2013. We also organise part of Kidderminster Arts Festival in August and a variety of other activities. FoSGP arranges social events such as quiz nights and meals out whilst also raising funds to support our projects in the area.
We always welcome new members and we work closely with other friends of parks groups and voluntary/community sector organisations and groups in the locality. St George's Park is a registered QE II Field in Trust to maintain it as a recreational green space in perpetuity, having been originally given to the people of Kidderminster by members of carpet manufacturing families in 1927.
