On behalf of the Committee I would like to thank you for your support of the Friends of Westminster Park in the past year.
Over the last several years we have been closely involved in significant efforts to attract new funds from various sources. As a result the facilities in the park have been greatly improved and are now widely enjoyed by many sections of the community. We have been maintaining regular discussions with Cheshire West and Chester Council regarding standards of maintenance and opportunities for improvement, both of which are under pressure from tight restrictions on public funding that are unlikely to change in the foreseeable future. Because of this it is becoming timely to consider whether other forms of management and wider use of private organisations or volunteers might be appropriate to achieve the full potential of the park.
Support from local residents and from clubs and visitors using the park is immensely helpful in reinforcing our discussions with the Council and we are grateful for your continuing membership. Through the year we have tried to improve our communications and feedback by reports in local residents associations’ newsletters which have the advantage of reaching a wide audience across the area served by the park.
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to your contributions in the coming year
The Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday 20th November 2013 at the Westminster Community Centre commencing at 2000 hours.
