Fleetwood residents are invited to view plans for a new open space project within the Westview Community Centre allotments. The event is being held at the Centre on Tuesday 26th September from 2pm to 7pm and a number of options for the plot will be on display. On the day visitors can also enjoy free tea and coffee and food made from produce grown on the allotments.
Leading the project is Jamie Shields, of the Healthier Fleetwood partnership, who points out that the Westview project and another 5 to follow across the Town are all about getting residents involved. “Working with the local authorities and land owners we have identified sites in Fleetwood to support residents’ physical and mental health. We hope the site at Westview will encourage people to learn more about the benefits of growing their own vegetables. All the sites need to be fully accessible and sustainable for the future but how we do that is for local people to decide so we welcome a wide range of views on the best option.”
Funding for the open spaces project was secured by Healthier Fleetwood in partnership with Regenda Housing from the Walney Extension Community Benefit Fund.
