A very warm welcome to the website of the Friends of Worthington Park in Sale.
We are a group established to work with Trafford Council, the local community and other partners to safeguard and improve the facilities in this local park.
We are proud to announce that, once again, the Park has retained the prestigeous Green Flag Award status.
We hope you find this site interesting and that you will visit often to find out what is happening in the Park. If you live locally, why not join us to help improve the Park. If you don’t want to get too involved, we would also welcome people who could help, even occasionally, at the events we organise in the Park e.g. help with erecting gazebos, staffing stalls etc.
Please download our Membership Form and email to email@example.com if you are willing to join our database of helpers.
At the AGM the Committee will report on activities and events which took place in 2019-2020 and present the annual accounts. The AGM will also elect the Committee and officers for the next twelve months. Here is the agenda:
The Friends of Worthington Park will be holding their 2021 Annual General Meeting at 7pm on Thursday 18 November at Sale Sports Club on Clarendon Crescent, Sale. Unfortunately accommodation at the Club is very limited but we hope to be able to stream the proceedings online via Google View. If you are interested in joining in online, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be sent the appropriate link once it is available.
The Friends have been busy this weekend beginning to clear soil around the bases of the lions in preparation for some restoration work. Local sculptor and stone carver, Nick Roberson, will be cleaning them, grinding and smoothing the bases, sorting out the paintwork and adding some bronze coloured highlights.
Absolutely delighted to be able to be posting that Sale Central Guiding have organised an Easter Trail in the park. It’s socially distanced and will run from 31st March over the Easter holidays. There’s a trail to follow with lots of Easter facts and some activities. Thank you so much for doing this Sale Guides – we really appreciate this and know it will be enjoyed by many.
Several members of the Friends Group attended the online training in asthma awareness organised by Heather Henry from BreathChamps CIC. The Friends of Worthington Park have now been accredited as a child asthma friendly organisation.
