£8,000 donation helps park’s growing success
Tesco teams up with Groundwork
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.
