Worth Park, Crawley, gets lottery grant

The five-year restoration project is being financed by a £2.42million Heritage Lottery Fund grant.

The council will be conducting a public consultation to help discover what games and other activities people would enjoy trying.

The consultation launches on October 9 and lasts for 10 weeks.

Interested residents will be able to fill in either an online or paper form.

Suggestions so far include themed walks, croquet drop-ins, tennis sessions, pétanque (a form of boules) and cycle rides.

They may also include anything from equipment hire for informal use to help with getting a group started or suitable access arrangements.

Cllr Duncan Crow, Cabinet member for Leisure and Culture, said: “We already have an active croquet club, which we value highly, but people may prefer to play on a more informal basis.

“They may also be interested in other lawn games made available to play with friends and family.

“The consultation provides a chance for the public to have their say and will give the council a better understanding of how to take it forward.”
