Bright Park Community Project Calls For Volunteers

VOLUNTEERS are needed to support the Bright Park project in Knotty Ash. The woodland area on the site of the former Thingwall House is being brought back to use by charity Liverpool Lighthouse with the help of the community. A meeting for those interested in volunteering to assist the project is being held on Monday, February 8, at 7.30pm at St John the Evangelist Church, Thomas Lane, Knotty Ash. Dr Tani Omideyi, founder of Liverpool Lighthouse, said: “This year the site will be used more and more, becoming a real asset for the community to treasure but we can’t run any of our events without our valued volunteers. “Their enthusiasm is what keeps Bright Park going and any help the public can offer brings us closer to opening the park permanently to the community.” Carla Phillips, Bright Park project manager, said: “The volunteers meeting will be held in the church cafe and cake will be provided. I’ll be telling everyone about the latest Bright Park news, including when we’ll be doing our archaeological survey and all the opportunities for people to get involved with this unique project. “We hope local people will be able to attend the meeting and support us in any way possible so that Bright Park can bloom again.” People can find out more by contacting Carla via email: travellersthroughtime@gmail.com or telephone: 07970 834859.
