Chairman to attend park re-opening and other engagements
Nottinghamshire County Council Chairman, Councillor Kevin Rostance, will be attending several events across the county this week.
On Thursday 11 July, the Chairman will be attending Nottingham Trent University Chancellor’s annual dinner at the University campus’ Arkwright building.
On Saturday 13 July, the Chairman will be attending the official re-opening of Andy’s Adventure Playground at Bestwood Country Park at 1pm. The play area is dedicated to local lad Andrew Maycock, who died in a hit and run accident back in 2000, aged just 16 years old. His mother, Sue Maycock, spearheaded the project to re-furbish the park in honour of his memory.
Coun Rostance said, “I am delighted to attend the re-opening and rededication of Andy’s Adventure Playground and express thanks to the hard work and efforts of the local community, in particular Friends of Bestwood Country Park and the Maycock family, in securing funding and donations to help refurbish the park for the local community to enjoy.”
The Bestwood County Park project is community-based, and was supported by the county council to secure funding from FCC Communities Foundation to help restore the park for families and children to enjoy for years to come.
Councillor Rostance will conclude the week at the Commandery of King Offa’s Annual Service and Renewal of Knightly Vows at St Barnabas Cathedral at 2.30pm Saturday. The ceremony will be followed by a banquet at the Belgrave Rooms in Nottingham.
