A park to be proud of

WeshamTreePlanting for web 110411

WESHAM Community Pride Trust got their spades out to make an impressive contribution to the number of trees in Fylde.

A total of 420 saplings were supplied by the RHS and the Woodland Trust to go up on the Fleetwood Road Recreation Grounds which is in the process of being transformed to create Wesham Community Park.

An enthusiastic group of volunteers from the community, including local children and youth group members, worked hard to plant the trees and the park is already looking better.

The planting was attended by Mark Menzies MP for Fylde, Cllr Linda Nulty, the Deputy Mayor of Fylde, and Marilyn Clayton, the Mayoress of Medlar-with-Wesham, who all took up their spades to help.

The Wesham Community Park Project will see an ambitious transformation of run down facilities with a new entrance, new playground equipment for toddlers and young children, a nature area, trim trail with exercise equipment and a multi-use games area.

Project Leader Cllr Martin Howarth said: “It was wonderful to see such a good turn out.

“Wesham’s community rolled their sleeves up and together started to build a park to be proud of.”

Mark added: “The work being done in Wesham is fantastic and its fantastic to see so many people chipping in to lend a hand.”
