£8,000 do­na­tion helps park’s grow­ing suc­cess

Tesco teams up with Ground­work

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

The Friends of Holt­spur Park group, which was set up to im­prove Holt­spur Park in the town, has been given the cash by Tesco.

The su­per­mar­ket gi­ant has teamed up with Ground­work in or­der to sup­port projects in com­mu­nity groups through­out the UK, and Holt­spur Park is one of the projects to ben­e­fit from this.

In 390 re­gions across the coun­try, three projects have been se­lected, and shop­pers have been able to vote which gets the cash.

Holt­spur Park has al­ready been an­nounced as the win­ner of the £8,000, but is also in line for a fur­ther £4,000 which would be used to plant more trees and bulbs if the bid is suc­cess­ful.

Paul Cor­nelius, a mem­ber of the Friends of Holt­spur Park, said that the group is grate­ful for the money re­ceived so far, but urged peo­ple to con­tinue vot­ing for the park in or­der to se­cure the ex­tra £4,000.

Vot­ing is open be­tween Fe­bru­ary 27 and March 6.

He said: “Please could you make ev­ery ef­fort to vote for Friends of Holt­spur Park and get your friends to do the same ev­ery time you visit a Tesco store be­tween th­ese dates.”

He added: “Your sup­port would be re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated by the Holt­spur com­mu­nity for years to come.”

Friends of Holt­spur Park was set up by a group of vol­un­teers as well as the town coun­cil in or­der to make the park a more at­trac­tive place, and to en­cour­age more peo­ple in Bea­cons­field to go there and en­joy the area.

Last year, the group se­cured ex­tra play equip­ment for chil­dren, and there have also been a num­ber of other projects tak­ing place there to im­prove the area as much as pos­si­ble.
