Eastwoods Park is a vital recreational area ideally situated to benefit everyone in Prudhoe.
The above sign gives a false impression of what is currently available in the park.
There can be no doubt that this area has suffered from a major lack of attention, and now needs a reasonable level of funding to make it suitable for all residents.
Be that to play sport or other recreational activities or just to relax.
Serious consideration has to be given to what is required by the whole population now and in the years to come, with a large increase in the Town’s population expected with major developments taking place at this time and many more planned.
Open spaces for recreation must be high on the agenda.
It is only right that everyone is given the opportunity to give their views.
Council employees do a fantastic job keeping on top of regular tasks but the area is well over due the investment.
Below in an example why investment is needed, a toddlers playground ride was left in a dangerous state when one of the handles broke away leaving sharp metal exposed,
We were contacted by a concerned resident and we informed Northumberland County Council who removed the ride.
Funding should be sought from a variety of sources so this does not become totally dependant upon the Council tax payers of Northumberland.
Guy Opperman & Gordon Stewart have met with local people who are showing a great determination to make a very positive improvement to the park and they have both offered their support.
Gordon regularly organises and fully participates in litter & dog mess clearance in the park and other areas of the town- This has made a positive difference welcomed by so many people. See Facebook posts – Click here
The Park along with other areas suffers from inconsiderate dog owners who do not clean up after their animals, Find out what we are doing to help combat this in Prudhoe – Click here
