South Park is back on the map!

10 Jul 2016

South Park is back on the map! The once neglected South Park, located in Cheadle Hulme, has received much needed TLC thanks to the Friends of South Park, a group formed by local mums, who celebrates in style last Sunday (03/07/16) at the grand opening of the new playground during their popular Summer Fair.

After years of hard work, the friends group who have worked in conjunction with Stockport Council have finally installed a brand new climbing frame in the playground, offering hours of fun and entertainment for local children.

Natalie Hughes, Chair of The Friends of South Park said:

“We are absolutely delighted to have completed phase 1 of the play area redevelopment. It was fantastic to see our local community showing their support at the fair. We’re hoping this will help South Park return to the community hub it once was!”

She continues:

“I would like to thank our local councilors, the local businesses and schools for their continuous support and of course, the following organisations who have contributed to the redevelopment of the play area: The Equity Foundation, Lloyds Bank Community Fund, ASDA Foundation, DM Thomas Foundation, Forever Manchester, Manchester Airport Trust Fund, Beedoo and of course WREN, our main funder whose £49,000 grant has made phase 1 possible.”

Finally adding that despite their success they are not resting in their laurels and still need to raise an extra £40K to regenerate the toddler’s play equipment.
