County and Parish Councillors are celebrating the news that Cleaswell Hill Park is finally in line for the major refurbishment it needs. Northumberland County Council has pledged £200,000+ for the project, which local residents and local councillors have been campaigning for years to achieve.
County Councillor for Choppington Ward Mary Murphy said” this is wonderful news for Choppington. I remember how busy and popular this park was when I was a child, and it is great to think it will be brought up to a standard where this is possible again “.
Choppington Parish Council Chairman Paul Vaughan said, ‘At long last NCC has found the money to start this project. I am inviting residents to get involved in planning the park this area deserves.’
