Volunteers set to to turn Queens Park into attraction
11:40am Friday 30th August 2013 in News
A GROUP of volunteers plan to live up to their name this weekend when they start to make a Crewe park into a top attraction.
The newly formed Actions Not Talk (ANTs) volunteer group will set to work in Queens Park on Saturday and Sunday.
The group is working alongside Cheshire East Council and the park’s management team to re-establish it as one of the best attractions in the north west.
Leanne Haythornthwaite, ANTs’ coordinator, said: “It’s all about community spirit and trying to improve the park. “People can come along and say hello, join in for an hour, the morning or all day if they have the energy.
“Every little helps, and we hope to show Cheshire East Council that the people of Crewe are prepared to do their bit.”
About 100 people are expected to help at the park this weekend, working on a number of tasks to improve it for visitors, from repairing and painting benches and clearing weeded areas by the lake to picking litter around the Tipkinder entrance.
Kirsty Taylor, ANTs co-founder, said: “We would urge parents to bring along their kids, as the park will serve future generations.
“If we can show our children that we care then they will hopefully continue the work with their own children one day.”
Organisers will be at the park from 9am on both Saturday and Sunday. Everyone is welcome to get stuck in or simply turn up and show some support.
