HUDDERSFIELD’S Beaumont Park is about to be further enhanced as a haven of peace for its many visitors.
The 29-acre Victorian park is being lovingly restored as a long-term project by volunteer group Friends of Beaumont Park.
And it now offers bereaved families the opportunity to plant a tree in memory of a loved one.
A special memorial book will feature details of the trees planted in memory of loved ones.
Neil Birks, of T W Birks Funeral Services, Holmfirth, went to the park earlier this week to hand over the memorial book which his company has donated to the Friends.
Meanwhile, the volunteer group is gearing up for its big family day and fundraiser on Sunday. The park’s annual gala is from noon to 5pm.
An ambitious programme of events is planned for the event, which last year attracted record crowds.
Knottingley Band, sponsored by the Beaumont Arms at Netherton, will entertain in the bandstand and further musical entertainment will be provided by Pennine Jazz.
Other attractions include a children’s magician, roundabouts and donkey rides, while the increasingly popular Visitor Centre will be serving food from noon until 4pm.
The Friends remind visitors that parking will be restricted at Beaumont Park Road and public transport should be used wherever possible.
