£21,000 Improvements For Stapleford Park
Over £21,000 has been awarded to Broxtowe Borough Council and Groundwork Greater Nottingham as part of a partnership bid to improve Pasture Road Recreation Ground in Stapleford.
The funding, from Veolia Environmental Trust will be help make improvements to the site including a new circular footpath around the Recreation Ground, as well as seating and bulb planting.
The new path will be similar to that introduced at the nearby Hickings Lane Recreation Ground which has proved to be very popular with park visitors of all ages.
Councillor Greg Marshall, Portfolio Holder for Environment said:
“The Council is delighted that this bid has been successful. The funding will help us to continue to work with partners including Groundwork to improve our parks and open spaces so they can be enjoyed by all Broxtowe residents.”
Broxtowe Borough Council will fund the remaining £10,000 required for the project.
Stapleford Community Group** were also pivotal in securing the funding, assisting with consultation work for the bid.
Works will begin later this year and local schoolchildren will be invited to take part in the bulb planting.
**Peatfield Road Recreation Ground as it is better known, the consultation involved meeting people on the park and delivering a questionnaire to ask local residents what they wanted on the park. The results all gathered and submitted with the funding application.
So many changes for the good are happening in Stapleford North Ward.
