Woodlands Park Needs Your Vote

(Copied from the SMBC website) The Friends of Woodlands Park are appealing to the people of Stockport to support their bid to secure vital funding from the Big Lottery Fund to build a multi-sports play area.

The group will be appearing on ITV1’s The People’s Millions, going head to head with another community group from Lancashire. The group that gets the most votes from the public will secure the funds.

The programme will be broadcast on Wednesday 2nd November, between 6.00pm and 6.30pm, with voting taking place by phone.

The group is hoping to win the public over with its exciting plans to construct a multi-sports play area to be used by all young people. The area would provide facilities to play football, cricket, volleyball, netball, short tennis and basketball.

Cath Severn, The Friends of Woodlands Park Secretary, said: “This area will provide much needed healthy exercise for the young people in the community of Offerton. It will allow both disabled and able-bodied young people to play sport together. We really do need your vote to make this dream become reality.”

Councillor Pam King, Executive Member for Leisure, said: “The Council is fully supportive of this bid and I would urge the people of Stockport and Granada TV viewers to vote for Woodlands Park.”
