The Friends of Jesmond Dene is a volunteer-run charity pledged to improve, preserve and promote the environment in and around Jesmond Dene for the benefit of residents, wildlife and visitors. The writer and broadcaster John Grundy is Patron of the Friends of Jesmond Dene.
We work closely with Urban Green’s volunteer and employed Rangers, who look after the Dene’s maintenance and undertake special projects to improve the Dene; and with other experts and specialists who run events.
Whilst we are not responsible for the Dene’s wildlife or its historic buildings’ maintenance, we exist to encourage public interest in everything concerning the Dene:
- conservation and encouragement of wildlife
- planting trees and shrubs
- sharing the local history of the famous families who have lived in or close to Jesmond Dene
“Improving, preserving and promoting the environment in and around Jesmond Dene Park for the benefit of wildlife and visitors.”
