residents celebrate winning funding to redo paths on Brunswick Park

Residents from Hazelwood and the surrounding area are celebrating following winning a bid for £4,000 from the “Your Pint Can” community fund scheme run by Carling and Weatherspoons.

The fund will pay for the materials for the pathways on Brunswick Park, at the far end of Hazelwood Road, to be replaced.

Organisers are now asking for Melksham residents to come and help with the labour needed to complete the works.

The work will start on bank holiday weekend with teams out working on Saturday 26th and Monday 28th August between 11am and 3pm. Work will then continue every weekend throughout September with the exception of the 2nd/3rd as that is the Food and River Festival. Refreshments will be provided for all those who help.

Chair of the Friends of Brunswick Park group Tracy Haslam commented, “We are so pleased to have won this funding, but now we need local people to come and help us make it happen. We need people who can help with the manual labour required to dig the existing paths out ready for the new paths to be laid. We have 165 metres of path to dig out so we would really appreciate all the help we can get.”

The scheme has the support of Wiltshire Council and their contractor id verde who will be helping with the laying of the new paths once the ground has been prepared.

Melksham South councillor Jon Hubbard commented “I am so impressed with Tracy and the whole team from Brunswick Park. They have adopted this park area and really want to help make a difference here. They have taken the initiative and gone out to make things happen themselves, not just wait to see what someone else does for them. I’m looking forward to getting stuck in and helping make this happen!”
