Friends work hard for parks

Have your say

On behalf of the Friends of Concord Park and Woodlands can I correct the lack of full information in Coun Peter Price’s campaign leaflet. It says: “We are currently building a new multi-games area in Concord Park”. No mention of the Friends Group’s work to find funding over the last two years from Viridor, Town Trust, Graves Trust, Community Assemblies, also a bid to the Lottery’s Community Spaces.

Many improvements to parks would not have been possible without work carried out by Friends groups.

An acknowledgement of that contribution could have been made in Coun Price’s leaflet, instead of giving the impression this is down to the local councillors.
