    Hi. I was just wondering if you are having a fun day on Christmas eve this year like you did the last time Christmas eve fell on a weekend. I came with family and friends and had a fantastic day x

      Hi Joanne Sorry for the late reply. We are having a Christmas in the Park event on Wednesday 21st December from 4-7pm. It will be in the area around the bandstand and activity centre. It will be a larger event than previous years although still quite a small scale (no fun fair or anything like that). Please see the updated whats on pages for more information.

    Hi

    I would like to know where the suggested donation money goes to. Is it back into a fund for the park to maintain these activities or does it go to Dudley council? I truly hope its to the Mary stevens trust.

    Kind regards

      Hi Katherine. We have a separate budget code for the park that we pay it in to. Our HLF funding finishes very soon so any donations received from activity participation, bird food, books etc… will go towards future park activities, events, equipment and bird food. We want as many of the new activities and events as possible (that began under the HLF project) to continue.
