FoLaR is a local community group, established to help improve the Rec., making it a place where there is something for everyone. We aim to increase biodiversity whilst also increasing opportunities for play, sport, relaxation, meeting friends and neighbours. See our other pages on the website to find out what we have achieved to date! It is our long term aim to replace the pavilion that once existed on the Rec.
