The Friends of Buile Hill Park have been doing good work in the park for many years and we are delighted to work alongside them on several projects to improve the park. Their volunteers are part of the Community Cafe Team who first opened the pavilion for hot drinks and snacks on Wednesdays, followed by other volunteers on Thursdays and Saturdays from 12:30 all year.
Mark Frith helped us on our sensory garden make over and his company Growing Togetherness has opened up the Allotment area which is a great area for people to relax. He also helps open the pavilion on Thursdays and Saturdays along with other volunteers.
Based alongside the Community Allotments a dedicated team of Croquet players lead by Francis have been supported to take control of the bramble barrier to bring a bit of love back to the old bowling lawns. Always keen to welcome new members they play on Thursdays and Saturdays from 12:30 weather permitting.

A big thank you to Salford City Council especially Alistair Cook for his support in ensuring we are compliant in running our activities.
To all our Facebook and Instagram followers who share our vision to see improvements in the management of the buildings within the park and the ultimate restoration of the Mansion and compound area.
A special thanks to those individuals and companies who have helped us by giving freely their expert advice and guidance and by spreading the word of our mission.
We would also like to send a big thank you to all the past board members of the BHMA who have worked hard to set up the group and create a place from which we have grown. Without the dedication of these early pioneers we would not be here today.
