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 firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details if you are willing to join our database of helpers.
The memorial plaque to commemorate the famous scientist James Prescott Joule has now been installed and will be officially unveiled at 11am on Friday 12 April 2019.
Gordon Cooke has finished the production of the memorial ceramic pavement and, weather permitting, it is hoped to install it in the Park by the end of February 2019.
A short explanatory leaflet, which can be downloaded, has been produced by the Friends Group.
Following the inspection in June 2018, it has now been announced that Worthington Park has once again been awarded a Green Flag. Congratulations to all those whose work contributed to gaining this prestigious award once more.

The Friends of Worthington Park in Sale has received a National Lottery grant of £5900 for an exciting heritage project, the provision of a ceramic pavement to be laid in the park to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of famous local physicist, James Prescott Joule. The project has been made possible by money raised by National Lottery players together with grants received from the Manchester Airport Community Trust Fund, Sale Mayoral Fund and private donations. The project will run from October until June of next year.
