Community picnic to champion importance of Belle Vue Park in Sudbury taking place tomorrow
A picnic is being held in Belle Vue Park in Sudbury on Saturday, as part of a campaign championing green spaces and parks being saved for the community.
Members of the public have been invited to join the gathering, as a way of showing their appreciation and support for Belle Vue Park as a significant outdoor community space in the town.
The event has been organised by the ‘Belle Vue Park - Rescue, Restore and Revive’ campaign, which was set up to oppose any major commercial development, such as a hotel, restaurant or car park, being constructed on the site.
Sudbury town councillor Ellen Murphy said: "Unless we protect the open spaces we have, our children and future generations will miss out on what myself and others took for granted.
"Children and young people need to be allowed to develop in their own time and space.
"Unfortunately, when we become adults, we often forget to think as a child does and appreciate the simple things like the nature around us. Please support open spaces and parks before it is too late."
The picnic starts at noon.
