Friends of Queens Park, Castleford; West Yorkshire 

Welcome to the Friends of Queens Park website, we were a totally voluntary not for profit environmental and social group serving Castleford, Wakefield & the Yorkshire and the Humber Region from February 1999 - February 2016

My thanks goes out to all our group members who gave up their personal time for the benefit of others over the last 17 years; you have left a positive and lasting memory in the minds of thousands of local people.
