Gearing up to listen to young people on Park's future

Leek's Brough Park is set to be the subject of a Heritage Lottery Fund bid to improve and enhance it - and the local Council wants to know how you'd like to see it develop.

The Park is playing host to Leek Town Council's Party in the Park event at the weekend - and Staffordshire Moorlands District Council is taking the opportunity to speak to a key group of park users, children and young adults, about their aspirations for the future.

The Extreme Wheels roadshow is just one of the attractions that will be rolling into the Park offering visitors the chance to try out BMX bikes and scooters and take part in mini-competitions throughout the day as well as enjoy displays from experienced and professional flat and ramp specialist riders.

And the District Council is hoping that the young people visiting the skate park area in Brough Park to see Extreme Wheels in action on Saturday  will share their aspirations and opinions on the Park.

Keith Parker, Head of Operational Services at the Council, said: "We're keen to speak to as many people as possible to ask their views about this important public green space right in the heart of Leek.

"As current and future users of the Park it's really important that we hear from children and young adults and as the events that are taking place this weekend will bring people to the park to enjoy the activities, it seems the ideal time to speak to them about their ideas and aspirations."

The Extreme Wheels event is taking place between midday and 5pm on Saturday 11 June.
