Wyndham Park centenary to be commemorated with celebration event

A three day event in July is set to celebrate the centenary anniversary of the opening of Grantham’s Wyndham Park.

Organisers the Wyndham Park Forum are working with Lincolnshire Fire Aid to stage the event, funded by a grant of £19,166 from South Kesteven District Council’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

Lincolnshire Fire Aid has also secured a unique return visit of the iconic eight-ton Wyndham Park Steamroller, presented to the park in 1966 by manufacturer by Eddison and once a popular feature in the play area.

A special appeal has gone out for business sponsors to help bring the unforgettable green machine back for the weekend.

Sensory Garden update

Isaac’s Apple – the central feature sculpture of the hand holding an apple has finally collapsed due to rot and decay (the wood was a Horse Chestnut tree –which did have disease, and so it’s decay was inevitable) the dry summer and wasps mining away internally has not helped. The Wyndham Park Forum have submitted a funding bid and more news will be updated here when we know the outcome.
