Fairfield Association Friends
Fairfield Association is now responsible for around
50 acres of land over five sites: Fairfield Green
Play Area, the Community Orchard, the Aldcliffe Triangle
(also supported by Friends of the Triangle) and the
two nature reserve sites, Fauna and Flora (please see map below).

The Fairfield Association Friends
exist to give people the opportunity to make
one-off or regular donations to the Association which
will help to cover the costs both of developing all
these areas as needed and also of their ongoing maintenance,
something for which it's especially difficult to raise
external grant money. Flora in particular, as our
newest and biggest acquisition, is likely to be most
in need of a continuous source of funding for the
next few years.
Since 2014 we have been drawing up detailed
plans which we will use to bid for the external funding
which will certainly be needed. However, most funders
now expect applicants to provide their own match funding,
and all funders require applicants to show that they
are well supported by their community. If we can show
that we have regular and dependable contributions
from The Friends, this will greatly strengthen
our grant applications, as well as helping to fund
our annual budget and our new projects.
All of the above activities cost
money (even the most enthusiastic volunteers need
tools and equipment!). We hope you will join
The Friends and give generously.
