Who we are.

Hyndburn Green Spaces Forum is a Charity and an Environmentally Registered Body, established in 2005, composed of representatives from a number of community groups in Hyndburn (see side panel for links). Its aim is to protect and promote the green spaces and parks in Hyndburn.

What we do.

Community groups work together to secure external funding for community projects and to provide help and assistance to each other on community consultation and community events. We work with Hyndburn Borough Council to secure 'Green Flag' status for our parks and as a forum for raising concerns and sharing best practice for the way our green spaces are managed.
