Celebration, Education, Recreation: A Park for People


We are an active community group committed to respecting the heritage of Castle Green, making more use of the park for today’s community and improving and protecting it for future generations.



A wonderful place to take advantage of all that snow.  All that was needed was the Christmas Fair reindeer.

We had a wonderful day on Sunday, 26th November at the Christmas Fair.  The reindeer were on their best behaviour and were lovingly petted all day.  The Ice King & Queen walked among the stalls in spite of the occasional shower and the Snow Globe made a lovely new addition to the Fair.  Carnival Arts worked tirelessly entertaining the children and the music kept us all going.  A huge thank you to everyone who donated to the ‘Barrel of Booze’ which proved to be an irresistible raffle prize plus the traditional Sunday lunch at Castle House.

Have a look at the Diary of Events 2018 on the left hand side for the dates organised so far.

If you were unable to join in the World Cafe events and give us your ideas for the future use of the Pavilion and its setting, Castle Green, please take a little time to let us know what you think using this survey link 

The Pavilion is open for business for meetings & events, there is a fully equipped catering kitchen and the River Room and Artists’ Room directly overlook the River Wye. There are regular yoga and tai chi’ classes plus a lively youth music programme with the Music Pool’s ‘Livewire’ programme.

IT Support: The Learning Box@Brierley Court (just off Turner Street) is a new community resource centre, within walking distance of Castle Green.  IT beginners’ courses, lots of computers to drop-in and practise on and very helpful personnel.
