MEMBERS of the Carter Knowle and Millhouses Neighbourhood Group are inviting local residents to a picnic in Springwood Park, behind the former Abbeydale Grange School.
The event takes place on the former school playing fields on Saturday, June 30, from 2pm and entry and parking are free.
The aim of the event is to raise awareness of the fields because residents want them to remain green space, rather than be built on.
Pam Denniff, said: “The day is to show the City Council that the Carter Knowle, Millhouses and Abbeydale Residents want these fields left as they are and not built on. Anyone who can entertain the children on that day would be made welcome.”
Parking is at the Bannerdale Centre.
