Join in with the 100 million visits to UK parks this #LoveParks Week (14 -23 July) and tell the world why you love your park.
And please join the volunteers at Winsford Gardens for tea and homemade scones and jam at 12.30pm on Wednesday 19th July.
Love Parks Week, now in its 11th year, is Britain’s biggest celebration of these valuable spaces. Penge Green Gym at Winsford Gardens is joining the celebration, and encouraging everyone to share why they love Winsford Gardens.
This #LoveParks Week, we are encouraging as many people as possible to go out and enjoy their local park. Take a photo, video or simply post on social media, using the hashtag #LoveParks, telling the world why you love your park.
Using this tide of public support, with people sharing how much parks matter to them and why, environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy will campaign to secure the quality of parks for future generations to enjoy.
In Other News Fabulous Open Day 2017!
Lots of fun was had by all at this years open day. We were blessed with wonderful weather and a visit from
the new Mayor Kathy Bance. Lots of faces were painted and lots of cakes were enjoyed. Once again we
enjoyed wonderful music from Musica Mediocre. Our new hopscotch was a great success and children
explored the park whilst doing the treasure hunt.
A Sad Farewell
We have to say a sad farewell to one of our longest serving volunteers. Chris is moving on
to pastures new but has played an integral role in at the gardens. He is a stalwart of the
committee keeping our finances in order and will thankfully continue to keep an eye on the
books. But he will mainly be missed for his humour and tea making abilities!
