About us

The Croxteth Park Volunteer Group (CPVG) was formed in January 2017.

It is recognised that volunteers make a unique and valuable contribution to people and communities and this is seen as an area in which significant developments can be made in order to benefit all sectors of society. Over the years there has been an increase in opportunities in volunteering generally, and nationally volunteering has been promoted by a number of initiatives.

There has been a growing body of legislation, guidance and research that has raised awareness, as well as expectations, about the role of volunteering. Much of the literature casts volunteering in the context of building social capital, promoting a civic society, empowering local communities and improving service delivery.

The CPVG is made up of local people who want to contribute something to their much loved park.

The group only formed in January 2017 and in a short period of time now has over 150 people on its volunteer database. We have tackled various projects including a litter pick as part of the Great British Spring Clean and are currently working in partnership with the City Council to restore a Grade II listed building (The Old Kennels) that had fallen into disrepair.
