People can find out more about the proposed works to Hednesford Park at a drop-in event at the park’s pavilion on 20th March.
The event will run from 11am to 8pm, with Council staff on hand to explain the proposed works and answer questions. A 3D walk-through of the park will be on display showing the proposed development, together with before-and-after images.
There will also be information about the existing trees at the park, proposed tree works and details of new planting. Children – and adults – can also take part in a fun tree identification game.
Cllr Christine Mitchell, Cannock Chase Council Culture & Sport Portfolio Leader, said: “The proposed works are part of major improvements being carried out to the park and war memorial following the award of £2.2 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2012. New tennis courts have already been installed and a raft of improvements will be taking place over the next few years. People can find out lots more about trees and the proposed works at the drop-in event at the park on Thursday 20th March.”
