Friends of Victoria Park Stretford

Friends of Victoria Park

Best Friends

Debbie Olsen I am a Best Friend of the group.  I have only lived in Stretford for three and a half years, but got involved with the park through my son’s child-minder.  It is nice to have a say on what’s happening in the area and it’s not a lot to ask to give up a few hours each year, to help in the lovely park, which is a bit of a secret gem.   The park is a beautiful place and the events organised by the FOVP’s give it a real sense of community and pride in the area.  The Friends work hard to be constantly finding funding to improve the park for everybody young and old and I am happy to help whenever I can.  I particularly love the Christmas event!  Get involved – it’s a big park and the FOVP’s need all the help they can get especially on clean-up days!

    I would like to be a member of Friends of Victoria Park, Stretford

    From 1949 to 1955 I was an apprentice gardener at this park.
