Great news! Beddington Park will receive £3.7m from the heritage lottery fund to spruce up the park.
Lib Dem Councillor Nighat Piracha is a member of the steering group, also consisting of Friends of Beddington Park and the community, which secured the funding.
Nighat said: “The hard work by all the team paid off in the end. A big thank you to everyone involved. Now the hard work really kicks in to make this dream a reality. We’ve brought in a design team who will work on developing ideas over the coming months.
Cllr Pat Ali commented: “We’re lucky to have such a beautiful and historic park right here on our doorstep. It’s one of the many reasons that Beddington is such a great place to live, work and raise a family."
