Winged residents move in to Crays Hill Park

Crays Hill Park Community Project Friends Group has successfully applied for funding to Shanks Waste Management, to help promote wildlife sustainability at Queen Elizabeth II Crays Hill Park, Swanwick.

The funding has provided newly installed penthouse suites in the form of 6 bird, 2 wren/robin and 5 bat boxes, which have been placed by Groundwork Trust (Creswell, Ashfield and Mansfield) at locations throughout the park and on the pavilion building.

Cllr David Wilson, Portfolio Holder for Environment said: “This is another improvement for Crays Hill Park, which has been transformed over the past seven years from a near derelict site, to a thriving Green Flag Award winning recreation ground, with an excellent play area, well used cricket and football pitches, lovely far reaching views towards the Peak District and pleasant wildlife walks.”

If you would like to become involved in volunteering at Crays Hill Park, or for further information, please contact Dawn Hutsby, on 01773 841504 or email
