Deputy Town Mayor Councillor Tony Parker hosted afternoon tea and cake on behalf of the Boscawen Fields Action Group to thank Cormac workers for recent works undertaken at Boscawen Fields which have greatly improved the area.
Councillor Parker said ‘It was a pleasure to host a thank you for such a worthwhile community facility and appreciate volunteers and partner agencies who work so hard to help maintain and enhance one of Falmouth’s valued green open spaces. I am pleased that a portion of 106 funds allocated to natural open spaces was made available for the most recent enhancements to Boscawen Fields. Residents getting together, and getting stuck in, in this way adds value to the core services that Councils provide and makes our town an even better place to live.’
The Action Group has been running for four years and has been successful in securing £40,000 funds through 106 monies, various services and donations which has been used for enhancements works to Boscawen Fields including hardwood and stainless steel seats, marine grade handrails and dry stone walling.
Lynn Newsham co-ordinator of the Action Group stated ‘the fields are loved by the public and are for all to use and are an area that should be recognised. The Group are fortunate that they can go direct to Cormac when any works are required knowing that works will be carried out to a high standard’.
Belinda Edwards, S106 Projects Officer for Cornwall Councils Public Space Team who helped manage the Project said ‘It was a pleasure working with this motivated local Group and working in partnership we have achieved high quality access improvements to this popular public space’.
