Friends of Hardie Park were recently nominated for a Locality Save our Spaces Award. Rob Groves and Mandie Groves went to Leeds this month for the Awards Evening. We didn’t come away with the award but we are really chuffed to have been shortlisted against such great projects nationally.

Save our Spaces is Locality’s campaign to save our much-loved publicly owned buildings and spaces from being sold off for private use.

Community ownership can put these buildings and spaces back at the heart of the community to protect them for generations to come.
