The Friends of Trentham Park continue their work developing their ‘pocket park’ in Beeston Hill, and would love to hear from other locals who want to get involved!
The group is led by local residents and supported by the Council and other local organisations. They formed in 2018 to revitalise this small and previously neglected park on Trentham Street, Beeston Hill.
Over the past two years, they have planted and maintained several raised beds and kept the space clean and tidy. They have campaigned locally on issues like dog fouling and held a wide range of creative community events including the latest in the February half term (pictured). They have also partnered with the Council to see new play equipment installed.
Sue Kaye, deputy chair, comments:
“It’s been a privilege to work on such a fun project. We’ve all had a fabulous time working together, in a very hands-on way, and a wide range of people have contributed enormously.
“I think we’re done a good job so far – but a few committee members have sadly had to step back, and we’re always keen to involve new local interest, so please get in touch to get involved.”
The group hold friendly monthly meetings on the first Saturday of each month, at 1:30pm at the nearby Rowland Road social club: the next is on Saturday (7 March 2020), then the following one is their Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 4 April. Or find them online at: facebook.com/friendsoftrenthampark
