Lloyd Park 2020 Survey
Finally, would you like to have your say on how the council manages Lloyd Park from 2020 onwards? Complete the Lloyd Park survey, available at (or get in touch if you’d like a paper copy). The council would like your views, to help decide on future priorities for Lloyd Park. Council funding beyond 2020 is uncertain, so we’ll be looking at alternative ways to maintain and improve the park and continue to run activities. The survey is open until 31 March 2018. Please contact me, if you’d like further information.

Kind regards,
