Plans to set up a “Friends of Chase Park” group are taking shape. Interested members of the public met at Whickham Community Centre on Thursday 8th October to discuss setting up the group which it is hoped will help win more investment for the historic park.
Councillor Peter Maughan, who chaired the meeting, said, “Chase Park is a great community asset for Whickham but it needs greater investment.
“With public purse strings likely to tighten over the coming years, we believe a Friends group will help to get in investment from the National Lottery and other funding bodies.”
If you are interested in taking part in the Friends group, please contact Peter Craig on firstname.lastname@example.org.
