Residents and children can play their part to support their local parks and ensure they remain clean and tidy this summer holiday as part of Love Parks week.
The national campaign begins today encouraging people to visit, enjoy and take pride in our parks and open spaces seeing for themselves the importance of their place in healthy, happy communities.
With Wyndham Park Forum holding its 90th anniversary celebrations this Sunday, Dysart Park Family Fun Day the same day and Queen Elizabeth Park always worth a visit, there’s never been a better time to appreciate Grantham’s open spaces.
South Kesteven District Council wants residents and children who take a trip to a local park to enjoy its facilities and remember to put their litter in bins and pick up after their pets.
Portfolio holder for leisure, arts and culture, Councillor Bob Adams said: “Love Parks Week reminds us all how important our parks are in the area.
“We know how much local people already take pride in their open spaces and enjoy them at all times of the year. We’re asking they take extra care in this dedicated week and the summer holidays to help keep them as tidy as possible.
“We work hard year on year with our grounds maintenance contractors to continually raise standards, culminating in Green Flag status at Wyndham Park.
“Whether it’s a stroll, a dip in the paddling pool or a picnic on a sunny day, do your bit for your local park by enjoying its facilities and leave it the way you would want to find it.”
