Marvellous new facilities open at Marbury Park

26 April 2016

Cheshire West and Chester Council, working with the Friends of Anderton and Marbury, has opened new facilities for park rangers and volunteers at Marbury Park.

The new connected blocks of office space, accommodation, toilets and catering facilities are the result of a £70,000 investment by the Council and were opened with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Councillor Louise Gittins, Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Wellbeing, said: “The enthusiasm and ambition from all the organisations involved in this project has been truly wonderful. There was a real desire to work in partnership to transform the facilities.

“The new facilities are bright, modern and more spacious, which will enable the volunteer base to increase and provide improved facilities for schools, community groups to hold events within the country park, particularly those around education and health improvement.” The Friends of Anderton and Marbury (FoAM) is a group of local residents who came together to support, influence and play an active role in the future of Northwich Woodlands.  The group was founded in 1999 and has since grown to a membership of over 230.

Around 24 members are regular volunteers who help the Cheshire West and Chester Rangers on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The group organises events throughout the year and publishes a regular newsletter.

Chair of the Friends of Anderton and Marbury (FoAM), Alan Redley, said: “We are all delighted with the new facilities. I’d like to thank everyone involved in making this happen.  It’s fantastic that they are now open and I’m sure they will be very well used for many years to come.”

The new facilities were opened by Alan Redley, Chair of the Friends of Anderton and Marbury, and Maria Byrne, Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Director of Place Operations.
