    Multimillion pound park project

    Brambledown Landscape Services is the main contractor at a multimillion pound park project.

    A Heritage Lottery ‘Parks for People’ grant is funding the work at Hirst Park in Northumberland.

    Ashington Town Council and Northumberland County Council also back the £2.9m project.

    Work includes landscaping, a formal garden, play area, footpaths and water play feature.

    Built in 1915, the park is where the Charlton brothers (Jack and Bobby) first played and trained but recently it has fallen into decline.

    Further funding will improve the Flower Park and public spaces.

    Brambledown Landscapes will also create new training facilities for the community.

    Brambledown director Paul Curry said:
    “This project will enhance and protect the park, and its heritage, for the community for the next century.”

    This isn’t Brambledown Landscape’s first HLF Park restoration and they have also worked on Walker Park, Barnes Park and Ropner Park.
