Preston Park

November 4th 2010

Tonight I attended a meeting of the Protect Preston Park group to celebrate victory in the campaign to stop a school being built in the grounds and determine the way forward.  The group is now going to work to support the park’s future- which is excellent news for all those of us who care about this local facility.  I spoke for a few minutes, as did local Councillor Maureen Rigg and others, but the event was otherwise an informal get together and seemed to be enjoyed by all those present.
