Lottery Boost For St. James' Park

St. James' Park in Shirley

St. James' Park has received a £65,000 cash boost from the Heritage Lottery Fund. This will allow detailed plans to be drawn up for the full £1.5million park improvement scheme.

The lottery funding awarded will enable work on the detailed designs to progress over the next 6 months and is a key step towards converting the vision of park users into a reality.

The Friends of St James’ Park have been working with local people on ideas for the park. Plans for the park include:
- fully refurbishing the WW2 building with a café and community room,
- creating two new entrances to the park,
- refurbishing the tennis courts,
- improving play facilities with something for both young and old!
