Residents work together to improve Trentham Park

The Trentham Park Project is using artwork and gardening on Saturdays throughout the summer to transform the pocket park in Beeston Hill.

The project is funded by Leeds City Council and delivered by Touchstone Support to build new friendships around Trentham Park. These are some photos from last Saturday 9 June session. The first two sessions have had over 40 people working with our gardeners and artists and on Saturday we put in the new planters and filled them with flowers. A big thank you to Big Brand Print of Kirkstall for the free banner material. Come along and join in next Saturday!

The aim is by the end of the summer to have a better looking, better looked-after and friendlier park. The staff leading the project are Kathy Beels, Irina de Saint-Ours, Sue Kaye and Tania Carlisle.

The posters below are from the poster competition to encourage the local residents to make the most of the park​:
