We are a small voluntary group committed to green and healthy living issues in, and around, our community of Nunthorpe ( even though Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland Councils are responsible for the western and eastern parts respectively).
We work closely with various groups ( Nunthorpe Parish Council, Community Council and Ward Councillors ( in both Mbro and R&C parts of Nunthorpe), other community groups, including Nunthorpe Greenspaces, and the Nunthorpe and Marton Playing Fields Association.

Lottery Grant Our plans informed a bid to the Community Fund of the National Lottery and were successful in an award of just under £10,000.

Contributes a leading part in Middlesbrough Alternative Planning Partnership which brings together green and community groups across Middlesbrough to promote the best planning and the protection of green areas and health in our town.
This wood is now protected and overseen by The Friends of Morton Carr Woods. https://www.facebook.com/groups/NunthorpesGreenSpaces
The Lottery gave us permission to revise our plans but with the same overall aims, so we have focussed on walks, a map and the use of QR cards ( some in these woods) and developing this website for you.
