What is Park View 4 U?
Park view 4 U is a charity based at the QEII Park View Playing Fields, Lytham and was established in 2003.
Since then the Charity has successfully raised funds to develop what was a boggy field into an award winning park which provides facilities for 3 generational users.
In 2012 Park View playing fields was saved in perpetuity as a Fields in Trust site. Fields in Trust is a national charity that operates throughout the UK to safeguard recreational spaces and campaign for better statuary protection for all kinds of outdoor sites.
We have a bespoke Sand and Water Play area, Toddler and Teen Zones, BMX track, Skate ramps, Playfit equipment, Multi Use Games Area, Amphitheatre, Football pitches, Woodland Walk and more.
In addition Park View 4 U deliver an exciting range of activities and events for the local community, many in conjunction with partner organisations. These include Health walks, Gardening Club, Cycling, Sports events and family activities.
We also have an Eco Pod community centre providing an excellent education programme including Forest and Beach School, Wildlife Watch Club, Junior Herbalist Club and a wide range of workshops and events.
Our Community Café is operated on a Social Enterprise model and all of the profits are reinvested to maintain the Park facilities.
Becoming a trustee of Park View 4U is one of the most important roles. Our board of trustees set out our goals and strategies for our award-winning community charity, and are invaluable to the continuation and growth of the project. They bring with them a wealth of skills and knowledge from different backgrounds to contribute to making an important difference on our community. The Trustees meet on a monthly basis. Being a trustee can give you an opportunity to learn more and be hands on in the management and organisation of a charity, as well as fundraising events and activities. It also gives you the opportunity to work with and meet a diverse group of people from your local community, it can also help in your personal development.
