The campaign for a large new park to be created using currently unloved land surrounding the Banbury Reservoir is gathering pace. In addition to an ongoing survey seeking people's ideas, a 'community hub' meeting has been organised for Thursday 28th September.
Among the many people who had a great time at last Sunday's Palmers Green Festival were members of the Broomfield Park Skatepark Group, whose stall attracted many visitors. As a survey is launched to gauge opinion, campaigners are continuing their efforts to raise money for a feasibility study.
