The main priority of the group is now to focus on community involvement in the park. To this end the park supporters group are putting on a range of events in the park this year, the first one of which is an International Women's day event.
We have also been working with the towns environmental department to have the main playground re refurbished which will be done by May 2020.
In addition the supporters group have spent 350 volunteer hours renovating the Gatehouse creating a more user friendly, safer environment and welcoming space for the Park Supporters Group, community groups, local residents and park users. The CPSG aim to create this as an inclusive space, to bring people together regardless of culture, faith and background, to meet, socialise, network and form friendships leading towards greater integration and wellbeing. The use of the gatehouse can be handed over to future members of the park supporters group, and future generations of the community can use it to continue to build inclusive and stronger communities.
