Friends of Newhall Park

Newhall Park is located on Main Street, Newhall, Swadlincote, Derbyshire, DE11 0TW and has been improved over the past few years in conjunction with the Friends of Newhall Park.

It offers a pleasant green space for local residents, offering opportunities for sport and informal play.

Membership is open to all residents of the local community and partner organisations are invited to meetings. The group meets four times a year at The Old Post Centre in Newhall.

The activities of the group have included:

  • tree and bulb planting
  • painting buildings
  • litter picking
  • fundraising
  • public consultation
  • organising funds and commissioning outdoor gym facilities
  • providing picnic benches
  • trying to involve more local people in the future of the park.

Anyone interested in joining the group should email

We recently had 5 students who volunteered to support South Derbyshire District Council and FONP with tree planting. The students have also been invited to represent The William Allitt School and attend ‘Friends of Newhall Park’ forthcoming quarterly meeting.
