The Big Green Week Returns to Ford Park

The Big Green Week Returns to Ford Park

Groups around Cumbria have been planning Swap Together for Good events for The Great Big Green Week from the 8th to the 16th June. 

And we’re doing our bit too!

Following the success of last years event at Ford Park we have been lucky enough to secure funding from Cumbria Action for Sustainability to hold a ‘Swap Together for Good’ event and to create a Community Herb Garden at Ford Park.

We will be holding a Swap event on Saturday 15th June from 11am until 3pm in the Williams Room and on the terrace where you can bring along baby bits (not clothes please), children’s toys and games, books, plants and seeds and swap them for other things.

It’s a great way to declutter of all the things you no longer need, and help others in our community while doing your bit for the plant and saving things from ending up in landfill! 

For each item you bring along you will be given a token which you can use to swap for another item from the event.

You can bring along items to swap at 10.30am on the morning of the event, or if you can, on Thursday 13th June to the Ford Park Office.

Any items remaining at the end of the event will be donated to our local St. Mary’s Hospice shop.

We’ve also invited local groups to come along and talk about sustainability and there will be children’s crafts and refreshments available free of charge.

If you’re unable to attend the event but would like to donate suitable items, please email
