The North West Forum of the National Federation of Parks and Green Spaces is holding the first of three free seminars in the North West, following on from the Conference in Liverpool. The themes of all three seminars are subjects suggested by people attending the Conference.
The first seminar will be discussing wildlife and will be held at the ERC (Environmental Research Centre) in Bolton. The centre is run by the Lancashire Wildlife Trust and the Trust will partner with us for this seminar.
Venue: ERC, Bury Road, Bolton, Lancashire, BL2 6DH
Date: 30th November 2013
Time: 1.00 pm – 4.00 pm
We are still firming up the full programme based around:
- The future for wildlife
- Partnerships with other wildlife bodies
- Learning about wildlife and recording information
- Improving opportunities for wildlife in green spaces
Please don’t feel that because you are involved with a traditional park this doesn’t concern you – wildlife can be found everywhere and new habitats can be created.
More detailed information will be sent out by mid-November, but if you would like to book a place, please contact Christine Hession by e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on 0161 445 6382.
Places are limited to fifty, so it would be appreciated if you could let us know as soon as possible if you, or another representative of your park, want to attend. There may be an opportunity for two representatives from the same park to attend.
Can you also advise us if you have any special dietary requirements.
The Health seminar has been re-scheduled and now will be held in January 2014, in Greater Manchester (venue to be confirmed). The third seminar, on setting up the North West Forum, how we can take it forward and the toolkit, will be held in February 2014, in Birkenhead Park.
We look forward to seeing you in November.
