Share your views on Wyndham Park

People are being asked to comment on restoration and improvement work being carried out that will establish Wyndham Park, Grantham, as one of the best public parks in the East Midlands.

South Kesteven District Council's award-winning park is being revitalised thanks to a £818,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and Big Lottery.

Anyone who would like to know more about how the HLF grant is being used, and the improvements being made, can go to the Morrisons Centre between 9.30am and 12.30pm on Saturday 14 July where a survey can be completed and council officers will be on hand to answer questions.

The survey is also available at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/wyndham2018 or by calling 01476 406502 to request a paper copy.

In total, the project to restore the park to its former glory as a World War One memorial park is costing more than £1million.

Changes include the provision of a new visitors' centre with public toilets, and restoration of the park's Memorial Arch, Memorial Shelter and Ticket Office. Seating, signage and security are also being improved.

SKDC's Cabinet Member for Retail and Visitor Economy, Cllr Nick Robins, said: "The changes will make the park a place that can be enjoyed all year round.

"There is not long to go with the restoration and we are on schedule, but we still value the public's opinion. We are keen to find out what local people think of the improvements that have been made, and those that are nearing completion."

The conclusion of the work will be marked with a Dawn of a New Era opening ceremony from 11am to 5pm on Sunday 9 September.
