Council appoint park champion

ON the eve of a multi-million renovation of a historic Hertfordshire park the council have appointed a new champion for their cause.

Sally Everett will soon be a familiar face to everyone using the Howard Park and Gardens in Letchworth GC.

She has been appointed North Herts District Council’s park champion to help bring this historic site back to its full glory.

Mrs Everett said: “The Council is making a huge commitment to Howard Park and Gardens, in partnership with the Heritage Lottery Fund and the BIG Lottery Fund’s ‘Parks For People’ scheme,”

“We want to make it a safe and welcoming place so more people use it, bringing it back to life and making it a community venue.

“This is an extraordinary asset to have in a town centre and I want to make sure everyone knows it is there and that as many people as possible are involved in making it enjoyable for everyone.”
