Malvern Editorial 1st Aug, 2014 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

RESIDENTS in a part of Malvern have been celebrating after securing much-needed funding to improve play equipment at a popular park.

Council chiefs at Malvern Hills District Council have helped improve the Fortis Living owned park in Pickersleigh which now includes new gym equipment, benches and a goal post for the community to use.

Residents behind the ‘Big Pickersleigh Project’ have been the driving force behind improvements to the area and the additions to the park are the latest in a long line of projects aimed at regenerating the Pickersleigh area.

Sue Heelas, assistant director of Housing and Community Services at Fortis Living said: “It is the hard work and perseverance of Pickersleigh residents which has brought real change to the area.

“Fortis Living is very proud to have supported the project by providing resources and support to residents to help them make a difference in their community.”

Additional funding from the Big Pickersleigh Project will see new ‘no smoking’ signage and bins being added in the near future.

To celebrate the park improvements the Big Pickersleigh Project members with support from Fortis Living will be holding an opening ceremony event on Thursday, August 7 between 12.30pm and 3pm,

Big Pickersleigh Project member Sam Glover added: “It is great to see the new equipment in place and I am hoping it will attract more people from the local community.”
