About

Who are they?
A bunch of Levenshulme residents, some old, some new and some borrowed.

What do they do?
The Friends of Highfield are friends of the local nature reserve. They maintain, promote and actively protect a little slice of countryside in South Mancunia.

How do they do it?
With a little help from their friends at various organizations such as Manchester Council Leisure, BTCV etc. Oh and good old fashioned graft.

Why do they do it?
The Friends of Highfield don’t do it for monetary reward, nor status amongst the many other community groups. They do it because it makes a difference and is rewarding. Every community needs a spiritual base and somewhere to relax. Highfield allows just that.

When do they do it? How do they do it?
Whenever they can. Some walk Highfield day and night with their canine companions monitoring every aspect of the field. In other words, some like to walk their dogs and relax. Others attend regular meetings and decide on what needs doing. Some dig. Some chop. Some write, some type drivel online. Some mothers do ‘ave ‘em. Some don’t. Someone has detracted. Whatever your skill, we can find something to you. See the events page for the next meeting date.
Why should I do it?
