Chair: Bob Dutton

Treasurer: Irene Hyde

Part of the Officers’ brief is to keep FoCHP, supporters and park-users informed of developments since NWC Landlife went into administration and closed.
Two public meetings have been held and Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council has agreed to save the NWC building and site, take back the lease and rename the building. Boston Seeds have bought the machinery, seeds, combine harvester, café equipment and car.
Bob Dutton, FoCHP Chair, has been invited as CHP representative to the Board which reviews Knowsley’s parks and green spaces affected by shortfalls in funding along with other representatives and Councillors. It is Bob’s intention to keep everyone updated on the outcomes of these meetings. The Friends of Court Hey Park are confident that Bob will represent the best interests of the park and the local community.
