After closing for the Winter season the café in the park is now open again and will be serving a range of refreshments throughout the day.
Although many of the recreational activities will not start for another month or so the changing weather means people can now enjoy a stroll in the park and take a break to warm up with a hot chocolate or cup of tea.
Other areas of the park are being refreshed ready for the summer with new electric rides being brought to the kid’s race track and new pedal boats for kids only.
In addition the Town Council has now taken back the concession for the park and will be running all activities directly with its own staff.
The Town Council are currently recruiting up to 12 seasonal staff in support of these activities and is seeking funding from Sport England to provide sports coaches at its Open Spaces around the town this year.
The Ground Staff will receive additional support from an ‘Apprentice Grounds Person’ and there are new events planned for later in the year to attract even more visitors to town.
On the 24th February the Town Council has organised an Italian Market in the shopping centre with a 3 day French Market planned for later this year.
A brand new web site is currently under construction and will ensure people are kept up to date with changes.
