We held the Locke Park car boot sale but the weather was against us. Let’s hope for better weather next time – in the Spring. We will let you know the possible dates once decided.
A great and very popular community event this Easter Sunday with an egg hunt and egg rolling on the hillside as well as facepainting, music and stalls. So popular that we ran out of eggs before the end. Sorry to anyone who missed out. But really enjoyable and the weather got better as the day went on. A record number of visitors to the Tower as well.
Friends of Locke Park have conducted a survey to get your views: what would you like to see in the park to help children and adults play and exercise. The initial survey is now closed.
We are now looking through the results and we will tell you want people think. After that, the next step will be to see what can be done.
Friends of Locke Park would like to hear about your memories of Locke Park and hear your ideas about its future. You can post them here by leaving a reply.
