MORE AND MORE PEOPLE now know what Whaley Bridge’s Memorial Park will look like in a couple of years’ time. The Fun Day on Sunday (25 Sept), organised by High Peak borough council in partnership with Friends of Memorial Park, was well attended – especially in the afternoon, when summer sunshine returned. It was a showcase for plans to improve the park as part of an ongoing nearly half a million pounds project.
Many people met the new park ranger Paul Evans. The activities and attractions suited all ages and tastes, ranging from children’s rides, quizzes, a tea and coffee stall to music from Whaley Bridge brass band, bug hunts and a climbing wall. Children took chance to learn fun arts and craft activities in a yurt provided by High Peak Community Arts. Several local organisations had information stalls.
