Friends of Turn Moss (FoTM) was established in May 2018. We are all volunteers with a passion for Turn Moss and a vision to create a safe, well maintained, accessible and environmentally diverse recreational green space which serves the whole community.
We came together in 2018, when we campaigned to halt plans which would have resulted in a sizeable area of Turn Moss being fenced off for a private football club. The campaign galvanised thousands of people and the many discussions it generated inform our list of priorities. Over the previous decade there had been very little investment in the site and improvements are still desperately needed.
We believe Turn Moss has huge untapped potential and can become a fantastic Sport and Health Hub for Trafford. It requires better facilities, thoughtful improvements to widen its appeal and clever utilisation of the site’s present assets.
The fields lie alongside the River Mersey, Bridgewater Canal and Trans-Pennine Trail, making them a perfect site to become Trafford’s Gateway to The Mersey Valley. .
We’re always looking for volunteers to help us protect and develop this wonderful green space. Join us!
