14 Aug Winchcombe Park next phase – a pump track!
An outline application has been submitted to the Planning Committee of Tewkesbury Boriugh Council for a new surfaced bike pump track.
Details of the application can be seen here.
Local resident Damian Parker has set himself a challenge to raise money towards the next stage of development – a pump track for bikes – by running a 24hr trail race.
“My family and I have lived in Winchcombe for 10 years and we would love to be able to give something back to our community. Winchcombe Park has been a fantastic addition to the town … I’m hoping to raise £1,000 to donate towards completing the next stage of the park by running a 24hr trail race.”
Contributiosn to Damian’s donation fund can be made at his “Just Giving” page.
Winchcombe Park officially opened in March 2022. The facility offers a wide range of activities: a place to gather, play, picnic, walk, skate, and exercise and has become an iconic destination for the whole community young or old.
The park also includes a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) suitable for netball and other ball games, a wheeled sports area for skateboarding, scooters and BMX bikes for all ages, an outdoor gym, a petanque facility, a zip-wire, a kick-about area, picnic area, circular path and much more. The environment has also been considered. Over 70 new trees and 130m of native hedging have been planted and a designated wildflower area created.
