Local organisations have come together to ensure community facilities can be enjoyed by the local community.
HA Civils has worked with Incredible Edible based at Court Hey Park in Roby to refurbish a bandstand, which was officially opened on 31 October 2023 by representatives from HA Civils, Incredible Edible and Knowsley Council’s Leader, Cllr Graham Morgan, along with local people attending Court Hey Park to enjoy some Halloween-themed activities.
The bandstand was dressed as a haunted house for the day and lots of families were on hand in fancy dress to enjoy the spooky surroundings.
The bandstand is a popular attraction in the park and has hosted a range of events, activities and performances.
Karen Mower, Chief Executive Officer at Incredible Edible said:
“The bandstand was in need of some upgrades to ensure that communities could continue to use this invaluable resource. I’m really grateful to HA Civils for giving up their time and sharing their expertise to refurbish the bandstand.”
Cllr Graham Morgan, Leader of Knowsley Council added:
“This is a great example of Knowsley Better Together in action where people and organisations come together for the benefit of Knowsley and its residents.
“Incredible Edible give so much to the local community, helping people to learn new skills, grow their own food and address social isolation, so it’s great to see others giving their time to support Incredible Edible and the local community.”
