Friends scoop an award for lakeside arbour

Arbour 1 May 2021

The work of the Friends of Greenhead Park has been recognised this month in the annual design awards programme run by the Huddersfield Civic Society.  The Examiner Readers’ Award was presented to FoGP Chair, Glenis Ireland, by Robert Sutcliffe from the Examiner (pictured above).

The award has gone to the Friends for the lakeside arbour  which now features striking new murals painted by local artist and FoGP volunteer Helen Williamson.

​​The Huddersfield Civic Society judges also recognised “the tremendous efforts made by the Friends in supporting the hard work carried out by the park’s gardening team in maintaining the herbaceous borders, a delight for those who regularly visit the park.”
