As part of the “Keep Britain Tidy” Great British Spring Clean, One Trafford are organising a litter pick in Worthington Park from 1.30pm to 2.30pm on Wednesday 10 April 2019.
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.
