OUR PARK NEEDS YOU!!
We desperately need to raise funds for the upkeep of the park and the general maintenance of the equipment and surroundings
The Pocket Park is cared for by a volunteer committee of local villagers. Funds are raised throughout the year with small events and the Bonfire & Fireworks display in November.
Due to Covid-19 this year’s display has had to be cancelled.
These funds are required to maintain the park and keep the equipment safe for visitors and children.
The yearly costs to upkeep the Park are £6300.00!
Please help if you can and donate to;
Boughton Pocket Park is funded and cared for entirely by the local community. It is a registered charity that relies on the hard work and fundraising efforts of volunteers. The 4.8-acre park is a beautiful green area for people to enjoy and explore in which wildlife can also thrive. Habitats include a wild mound, grassland and secluded pond. Please help us look after this lovely community space by using the litter and dog waste bins, and reporting any vandalism or anti-social behaviour.
PLEASE NOTE, CAMPING AND BARBECUES ARE STRICTLY PROHIBITED.
The 4.8-acre area of land was purchased in 1977 by Boughton Parish Council and then put in the hands of an independent management committee made up of villagers. In 2009 a new group was formed as only a skeleton committee was still in existence. In 2010 Boughton Pocket Park was awarded a Playbuilder Grant, which started the revitalisation of the Venes Play Area. This was followed by Community Spaces funding that paid for the remainder of the “New Venes Play Area”, plus a perimeter path, pond-dipping platform and many other improvements.
