A working group is ongoing for future-proofing the site at Turn Moss to ensure it stays open to the public as a greenbelt site. The group is investigating getting Village Green Status, Fields in Trust and would like to re-instate correct Right of Way footpath across the fields (it needs joining up!).
Turn Moss being a well used community greenspace is at the heart of all our discussions. It is there for all to enjoy.
As a Committee we aim to be open and transparent, always keen to hear ideas and suggestions from our members and users of the site. All issues are discussed fully at our Committee meetings.
These are held regularly, usually every 4 to 6 weeks. We produce a regular newsletter which keeps our followers and members updated of what has been happening.
FoTM representatives attend Friends of Trafford Parks and Green Spaces meetings. These are held every 3 months at the Town Hall. Topics covered are those which affect parks and green spaces across Trafford as a borough.
A Turn Moss Management Group has been instigated. These are regular meetings attended by stakeholders of the site, including FoTM. We discuss topics pertinent to the management of Turn Moss. Topics include: field management and drainage, buildings maintenace and improvements, grant applications, new equipment, future planning etc.
