We will also be replacing the wooden benches with recycled plastic ones and installing a noticeboard.

Community Litter Pick

Join us for a community litter pick in the park on Wednesday 1st April at 4.00pm until 6.00pm.

Chesterfield Borough Council have provided litter pickers and rubbish bags for us to use.

Latest news on the Path

With work now complete on the new path and drainage we do have some concerns. The flooding of the gardens on Rockingham Close hasn't been alleviated and we think the top dressing of the path is inadequate. We are pursuing these issues with the Borough Council.

Work in the Park

The bulk of the work on the path and drainage is now complete.

The large piles of soil are going to be used within the park and the excavated rocks will hopefully be used to create a feature near the junction of the old and new paths. However larger machinery is needed for these tasks and the ground conditions are so poor at the moment it was thought best to wait until the spring to finish off completely.
