Goodbye Chris!

Chris Smith – who’s been Greenhead Park’s activity officer for almost 3 years, and the park warden before that – will soon be leaving us for pastures new. Chris has done a great job bringing lots of activities to the park (and running some of them too) – and helping to make the park a much safer, friendlier place. We wish him all the best in his new post, and hope he’ll come back and see us now and then!

Chris’s post was funded as part of the Heritage Lottery Fund restoration of the park, and has certainly proved to be money well spent. Sadly, council budget pressures mean there’s no cash to continue employing an activity officer, but Chris has worked hard to try and ensure that as many activities as possible are able to keep going without him.  The Friends will be doing our bit to help keep a varied programme of events and activities going in the park – and we’d welcome any ideas and offers of support!
