Green Gates Park – the whole town can get involved

THE team leading the campaign to save Green Gates Park, Frodsham wants to get the whole town involved in their fight.
They are holding a drop-in session at the Bear’s Paw, Main Street, on Sunday, March 8 between 2pm and 4pm to allow the whole community of Frodsham to see the exciting plans they for the park, on Ship Street.
The Green Gates Community Project is a campaign against the proposed sale of the land for housing and the equally controversial proposal to lift a covenant which currently preserves the land for use by the children of Frodsham.
Positive steps have already been taken, with Frodsham Town Council agreeing to cut the grass, and in the near future, to open the side gates and install two bins – allowing the land to be used by the public again.
People from all over Frodsham are invited to drop in at the Bear’s Paw on March 8 to meet members of the Green Gates Community Project committee, chat about the work they have been doing over the past two years and see some of the ideas that have been put forward for the regeneration of the park.
The drop-n session will be an event for the whole family, with paper and crayons available in the “Kid’s Corner” for children to draw their own ideas for the park.
Older people, particularly those perhaps feeling a bit socially isolated, are invited to attend and see the plans for a green space where they could vcisit, enjoy some fresh air and meet up with friends old and new.
A spokesperson for the project said: “This is a community project and if all of Frodsham gets behind it, Green Gates Park could be another fantastic open, community space for the young, and not so young, right across the town to enjoy!
“We’re excited about talking to Frodsham people about our work on this campaign, and we’re very grateful to Ali at the Bear’s Paw for giving us use of the barn for the event. We look forward to seeing you all there between 2 and 4 pm on March 8.”
There will also be an opportunity for people to sign the Green Gates Community Project’s petition to save the park.
