Who We Are
The Mote Park Fellowship is a group of volunteers who work closely with the Maidstone Borough Council to look after and maintain Mote Park in Maidstone.
The group was created in 2013 following the amalgamation of two groups, the Friends of Mote Park (who had a consultative role with the Maidstone Borough Council and also undertook some more practical work in the park) and the Mote Park Volunteers (who were formed as a requirement of the funding as part of the 2011 development in the park).
Our members include a wide variety of people, including students, working professionals and retired members of the community. We also have a good turnover of volunteers who look to keep active between jobs as they appreciate that volunteering between work can greatly improve their CV.
Working closely with the Maidstone Borough Council who own the park, we work to promote its history and the diverse wildlife it supports. Our projects hope to increase this diversity where possible, although the maintenance of the current environment is our priority.
We aim to support the investment that has been put into the park. Thousands of hours of work have been volunteered over the past 10 years.
The Fellowship provides an opportunity for local people to be involved and have a voice in the future direction of the park.
Anyone is welcome to join our group; if you are interested then please let us know.
We meet every Wednesday morning at 9.00 at the metal storage container adjacent to the lake between the boat house and the water sports centre. All new volunteers will be warmly welcomed.
