1st February 2016
... Comments

The local Easter event will be held in Telford Town Park and is supported by Telford and Wrekin Council. Other partners for the event include Telford Steam Railway from Horsehay, who will be holding themed train activities including miniature train rides and a guest appearance from Thomas and The Fat Controller. 

The Town Park was voted the best in the Fields In Trust Awards at the beginning of December; Telford and Wrekin Council will help celebrate its success at the event titled 'Spring Into The Park' on April 2.

Spring Into The Park will feature stalls, talks, demonstrations and a Gardener’s Market marquee hosting stalls from nurseries, garden centres and organisations that have a passion in the gardening sector.

Other activities for families and young people to get involved include planting, bug hunts, pond dipping, hedgehog home and bird box making, face-painting, an Easter Egg hunt as well live entertainment and a Fun Fair in the arena. 

Telford’s very own Animal Man  will be bringing along his Exotic Zoo too. 

The event will be FREE to come along to, a nominal charge for some activities throughtout the event.

Councillor Liz Clare, Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet member for Leisure Services and Culture, said: “We were very pleased but not surprised that our beautiful Town Park received national recognition in the Fields In Trust awards and Spring Into The Park is a great opportunity for everyone to celebrate its success.

“I think we’ve lined up an exciting event that has something for all the family and we know that Thomas the Tank Engine will be a huge draw.

“We are looking forward to a fantastic day out and there will be more announcements about what will be there for people to enjoy in the coming weeks.”

Telford Town Park is owned by Telford & Wrekin Council and was nominated for the Fields In Trust award last year by a member of the Friends of Telford Town Park, a group which started in 2003 to help give the park extra care and attention.

Friends of Telford Town Park nominated it because of the range of attractions including new features like the water play, high ropes course and adventure golf, the sensory garden, a fantastic mix of biodiversity and nature reserve as well as the more formal gardens.

The Telford Town Park Arena is protected by Fields In Trust as a Queen Elizabeth II Field and is the focal point for a variety of community and business events.

There were 122 parks nominated nationwide and 8,000 public votes cast. It was the first time Fields In Trust had given out awards based on people’s votes.

Fields In Trust is the only UK wide charity which protects and improves outdoor space for people to enjoy.
