Share your love for Leek's Brough Park

If you love a slice of park life then join us in Leek next week to share your passion for the town's Brough Park - and possibly help to secure Lottery funding for a project to make it even better!

Staffordshire Moorlands District Council is working with cultural consultants Barker Langham to draw up an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund to improve and enhance the park.

Public involvement in the bid is important to ensure that the scheme reflects the aspirations of local people so the Council is encouraging everyone with an interest in the future development of the park to share their views with us.

The team will be at Waitrose in Leek between 9am and 6.30pm on Tuesday 26 July and are inviting anyone who hasn't yet done so to join them and complete a short online survey or come along for a chat.

Councillor Sybil Ralphs, Leader of the Council and portfolio holder for regeneration, said: "We are very lucky in Leek to enjoy such a beautiful, green oasis so close to the business and leisure amenities of this thriving market town. This is an exciting project which we hope will see Brough Park further improved and enhanced and secure its enduring appeal for future generations.

"We know that many people share our enthusiasm for the park and its future development so we are keen to hear from as many people as possible as we work to submit our bid later this summer. A key part of that is support and ideas from the local community so if you haven't yet shared your thoughts with us, come along to Waitrose next week and tell us what you think."

The team is also interested in talking to anyone that can give us any information on Ball Haye Hall and its grounds or has old photographs to share with us. If that sounds like you, we look forward to seeing you on the day.

The bid to the HLF will be submitted at the end of August with a decision expected at the end of the year.
