Welcome to Worthington Park in Sale

Featured

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 email volunteer@worthingtonpark.org.uk with your contact details if you are willing to join our database of helpers.

Friends Group AGM – 17 July 2018

We would like to invite you to the Friiends Group AGM which will take place on Tuesday 17 July 2018 at 7.30pm in the upstairs room at the Moorfield Hotel, 131 Marsland Road, Sale.
We are very excited to have Gordon Cooke as the speaker this year. Gordon, potter, teacher  and designer for 35 years, makes stoneware planters and scuptures in concrete. He will be talking about his career as well as the methods and processes used in the design and construction of the proposed Joule pavement in the Park.

Commemorating JP Joule

This year is the 200th anniversary of the birth of James Prescott Joule, the famous physicist.
To commemorate this famous scientist from Sale the Friends of Worthington Park are currently trying to raise funds to cover the cost of a piece of artwork.
The Friends have commissioned a well known local artist, Gordon Cooke, to create a ceramic pavement near the James Joule bust. This work will include information about Joule and we think it will act as a beautiful focal point for this area of the park.
We are aiming to get this installed this summer but we need to raise £7,000 for the artwork and a further £4,500 for the project management and installation – a total of £11,500.
We are hoping to raise the required amount through bidding for funds and donations. To date (May 16th 2018) we have raised £4,525 in funding but we still have a way to go and although we still have some bids being considered we have also set up a Just Giving page and all donations will be gratefully received

Should we be fortunate enough to exceed our target the money will be used to support future events and activities in the park.
