Friends of Buchan Country Park are a group of people who very much enjoy Buchan Country Park and who feel that we would like to promote its use as a beautiful public space.

As an independent self-funding body, we aim to promote and support the Environment and Education Service based at Buchan Park in addition to the management of the Park. This is done through annual activities including Art in the Park, Easter Egg hunt, Fun Dog Show, All About Apples and Christmas Carols which all raise funds for the park.

Membership is only £2 per year and the committee is always looking for new members to join, donate a few hours help at events and contribute to our meetings. Feel free to view our constitution, find out more about becoming a member, or get in touch if you have any questions.
