BONFIRE NIGHT IS BACK!
Pocket Park Bonfire Night - November 6th
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.
