Town’s first com­mu­nity park may open soon

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

BEA­CONS­FIELD’S first com­mu­nity park could soon be open.

Bea­cons­field Town Coun­cil, along with the Friends of Holt­spur Park, are aim­ing to re­ju­ve­nate the recre­ation ground, in Holt­spur Way.

Work has al­ready be­gun, with fundrais­ing events held last year and the coun­cil putting out ten­ders for a new play­ground and teenage fit­ness ar­eas.

A decision is ex­pected this week, with win­ning bid­ders an­nounced later this month. It is hoped the work will be car­ried out in March.

Open spa­ces com­mit­tee chair­man Philip Bas­ti­man said: “Our long-term goal is to cre­ate Bea­cons­field’s first com­mu­nity park.”

An out­door gym was of­fi­cially opened last month and is al­ready in use. The project be­gan after neigh­bours said the recre­ation ground needed spruc­ing up. They listed a gym, play area and land­scap­ing as part of the project and set up the Friends of Holt­spur Park.

The Friends of Holt­spur Park’s next fundrais­ing event is a curry and bingo night on Satur­day, Jan­uary 24.
