An Update on the Development Project at Blackpool Road North Playing Fields from your Liberal Democrat Councillors - Karen Henshaw and Joanne Gardner
Karen is a founder member and Vice Chairman of the Friends of Blackpool Road North Playing Fields (BRNPF) and Joanne is the Assistant Treasurer. They have both, together with other members, helped with planting bulbs and wild flowers. Karen has instigated meetings with residents to gather their opinions, and Joanne has helped collect questionnaires from those who regularly use the playing fields, both are absolutely committed to the development of the playing fields for the use of local residents.
They welcome the fact that Fylde Borough Council is now starting to improve this area.
Unfortunately the main drain, which runs the whole length of the Fields and runs under the playground, has collapsed in parts. It will be a complicated process to repair, involving many landowners, but Fylde Council officers are working hard to solve the problem.
The main user of the football pitches is St Anne's Football Club, which will be celebrating its 50 Year Anniversary in 2022.
Let's hope that this great local facility will be transformed by then.
