Parks for People cash for Greater Manchester

Parks in Bolton and Tameside have been awarded Lottery funding from the Parks for People programme to pay for the cost of redevelopment.

Stamford Park between Ashton and Stalybridge in Tameside will receive £3.9m and Queens Park, Bolton £4.3m from the Big Lottery Fund and Heritage Lottery Fund.

Parks in Leicester, Middlesbrough, Southampton and Letchworth Garden City also won HLF and BLF support.

Carole Souter, HLF chief executive, said: "£18 million will go a long way to transform these six parks, but further money will always be needed to ensure they are properly maintained."
