Councillor to mark Centenary of Stoneham Park

Labour and Co-operative Councillor for Wish Ward Anne Pissaridou is calling on the local community to join her in celebrating Stoneham Park’s 100th Birthday at its special Centenary Festival being held this Saturday in the park.

Councillor Pissaridou, who has lobbied hard for extra funding and improvements to the park since her election in 2011, has played a key role in getting the community together to support the park and has helped with many events in the past, will drawing the event’s prize raffle. The Centenary Festival promises to be a fun filled event with entertainment for all the family, live music as well as a childrens parade into the park to be met by the Mayor.

Commenting ahead of the event, Councillor Pissaridou said

‘I’m really looking forward to Saturday and the chance to celebrate Stoneham Park ’s centenary. The day will be an excellent showcase of just what a key community asset Stoneham Park , a green flag certified park, is to local residents. Due to the built up nature of the nearby area many don’t have gardens and the park provides them with an invaluable lifeline by offering an open space they can take their children.

Ever since I was elected for Wish Ward, I have been working tirelessly to make sure the Council makes the most of Stoneham Park . I’ve also been working closely with local community groups to get the parks café reopened after it closed earlier this year.

The improvements that have been made to the park in recent years are welcome, but there is clearly much more that could be done. I will continue to lobby Councillors to see how we can further support and improve Stoneham Park in the years ahead for the countless families and young people that depend upon on it.
