Spring Newsletter 2018
After a period of uncertainty and inactivity following the closure of the National Wildflower Centre and the future proposals for the park, the Friends intend to activate the newsletter for our members.
A new committee has been elected with several new members:
Bob Dutton (Acting Chairperson), Rob Duffy (Hon. Secretary) and Irene Hyde (Hon. Treasurer).
Summer activities continue on a regular weekly basis; Monday: Healthy Heart Walkers. Tuesday: Health on Wheels – cycling along the Loop Line. Thursday: 10am Nordic Walking and 6pm Evening Cycle Ride. Saturday and Sunday: Whitefield Roby Cricket Club.
Luckily, we still have the services of Karen Brady, Knowsley Green Space Ranger, to support group activities and park-based events. Karen can be contacted on mobile number: 07771550843 for more information.
At their Stakeholder meetings, the Friends are in the process of drawing up a Management Plan for the park with Knowsley Council.
We have commissioned new information boards in the park to give an insight into its history and a Friends’ Time-line. Also, we now have social media web pages on Facebook and Twitter and an online website, “Friends of Court Hey Park” where ongoing activities can be accessed. Please look out for notices on the boards at the entrance and Friends’ Room announcing when events are due to take place.
Membership of Friends of Court Hey Park is open to anyone with an interest in the park. Meetings are usually held on the first Monday of the month at 1.30pm in the Friends’ Room in the Old Stable Block. You can help by volunteering for the Friends at any event held in the park such as Family Fun Day and the Knowsley Flower Show.
