Mayor opens transformed under 5s play area

Opening JE 5
Cutting the ribbon

After more than a year of fundraising by the Friends, it was fantastic to see the Mayor of Kirklees, Cllr Gwen Lowe, cutting the ribbon to officially reopen the park’s under 5s play area on Saturday 11 August.  FoGP Chair, Glenis Ireland, welcomed Friends, supporters and representatives from the organisations whose funding had made the makeover possible, and thanked everyone for their part in transforming the play area.

As Glenis said at the opening ceremony, we think this project is a great example of what can be achieved by community groups working in partnership with the Council, and is what Friends groups are all about.

The new equipment is proving very popular with little ones and we’re really pleased to have been able to improve this part of the park with support from all the generous funders and donors.
