THE relaunch of a Little Neston park is to be celebrated on Sunday.
After years of being overlooked, a joint project between Marks & Spencer, the former borough council and Groundwork Merseyside has led to the transformation of West Vale Park in Little Neston.
The scheme has been the installation of new play equipment, the laying of paths and tree and hedge planting. An eight tonne climbing boulder has also been put in.
Local Cheshire West and Chester councillor Kay Loch, said: “It’s great to see this formerly neglected park being given a new lease of life for the local community.”
Part of the improvement has been paid for through M&S’s Greener Living Spaces fund which is paid for by the profits from sales of M&S food carrier bags.
Staff from stores in Birkenhead, Chester and Heswall planted a hedge in January to improve wildlife habitat in the park.
The celebrations on Sunday will run from noon to 4pm. There will be birds of prey displays, live music, a BBQ and activities, arts and crafts for all. Entry is free.
