The Friends of South Cliff Gardens are a group of dedicated volunteers who have been supporting the development of the gardens for over ten years. In fact, with the support of Senior Coastal Officer Stewart Roe and expert design consultants Oobe, the friends wrote the first funding application to the National Lottery Heritage Fund which opened up the opportunity to save the gardens and preserve it for future generations to enjoy.

Our Friends Group is made up of passionate volunteers from all walks of life, from retired people who “want to give something back” to young people looking to widen their experience and aid their first step into work.

What all our volunteers have in common is the wish to give their time, energy and skills to help South Cliff Gardens achieve its purposes of conserving the special qualities of the Gardens and helping visitors to enjoy and experience all the Garden has to offer.
