Felixstowe Town Council Celebrates ‘Love Parks’ Week

Posted by Town Hall Staff 04 August 2023

Felixstowe Town Council will be among hundreds of parks across the country taking part in Love Parks Week 2023.

The celebration will take place from 28 July to 6 August, bringing together local authorities, green space managers, landowners, residents and community organisations to celebrate and support our fantastic green spaces all across the country.

The Felixstowe Town Council Grounds Team are responsible for caring for Allenby Park and Gosford Way Park locally.

The Mayor of Felixstowe said “Felixstowe Town Council is responsible for Allenby Park and Gosford Way Park. These two green spaces are an invaluable local resource, utilised by residents and visitors of all ages and backgrounds.

The Felixstowe Town Council Grounds Team care diligently for Gosford Way and Allenby Park, ensuring that the trees and foliage are maintained, the grass is cut, and that any play equipment complies with health and safety regulations”.

Keep Britain Tidy’s Chief Executive, Allison Ogden-Newton OBE, said: “The Love Parks campaign would not be possible without the backing of our local authority partners, including Felixstowe Town Council, park managers and landowners.

“This week is an opportunity for everyone to recognise the value of our parks and green spaces for communities, health and wellbeing, and to encourage groups within our communities that may not think of parks as a space for them to visit.”

This year’s campaign is made possible thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
