Park Saved

On Thursday South Cambridgeshire District Council (SCDC) councillors confirmed Cambridge Sport Lakes Trust (CSLT) as their preferred bidder to run Milton Country Park. Work will now start for the transfer to take place by early next year. Under the Trust's plans the park would continue to provide existing amenities and expand on the range of activities available for visitors. With the support of a one-off £250,000 payment from SCDC, the Trust proposes to take on the Park's existing staff, managing the Park with them plus assistance from volunteers and partnership organisations.  read more ...
