2017 was the 6th year of Friends of Parkinson’s Park. We formed in 2011 when the fields developed by Crompton Parkinson to replace the old Kelcliffe Recreation Ground had grown into such a wilderness that people would not take their children because of the mess.
Our aim was to make the Park useable again; a landscape for local residents to build new memories to treasure.
A lot has been achieved through the ups and downs of the past 6 years with the input of many people. 2018 will hopefully see things develop further with the help of many more.
Happy New Year from
Chris, Jenny, Andy, Nicola, Barbara, Martyn, Josie, Colin and Fran
