As we look towards this year’s Envirolution in Platt Fields on 21st July we are considering what we can do to improve the park and leave a positive legacy.
As part of this we will be in the park every Wednesday from 1pm getting involved in the park. We have been helping out with the community garden and will be working on the eco garden over the next few months. If you would like to come join us head over to the lakeside centre for 1pm on Wednesday.
Another big event that takes place in Platt Fields Park is Parklife. You can have the chance this Friday to have your say on how it will be using the space and the legacy that they are leaving.
Below is information from the Fields of Platt Fields Park.
The organisers, police, environmental health and rubbish services people have organised a residents consultation day this FRIDAY. They will be there to talk about the festival planning for this year, with local people.
PLEASE COME TO ONE OF THESE 2 MEETINGS IF YOU CAN – AND TELL ALL YOUR NEIGHBOURS WHO MAY BE INTERESTED.
DATE: THIS FRIDAY 18TH MAY
TIMES: either 4.30pm or 6.30pm (2 sessions, so all people can hopefully make one of these)
PLACE: the Lakeside Centre, Platt Fields
What has happened in past years is that the organisers discuss with us
• the festival layout in the park,
• the number of days that the top end (showfield and grangethorpe Field) will be out of bounds to anyone – and the extent of the exclusion;
• the plans for collecting litter,
• traffic management,
• anti-social behaviour (late night noise, people urinating in gardens etc)
• and re-instatement of any damage to the park
It is really important that they should know how concerned many people are about damage to the park following the event – as last year it was disgraceful, preventing residents from using large sections of the park for weeks.
Last week the show field was swamped in water – three separate small lakes, with ducks on them.
