Wicksteed supports the NFPGS (National Federation of Parks & Green Spaces) and Sales Director, Stuart Wetherell together with Area Sales Manager, Simon Burke, attended the first ever Love Parks Conference and Awards Ceremony in Nottingham yesterday. Aimed at bringing together community groups, volunteers and relevant organisations and businesses to raise awareness of the importance of parks and green spaces, the Love Parks Conference also provided the ideal opportunity to hand out some awards at the end of the event in nine different categories.

Love Parks supports and encourages groups and local authorities to improve and protect green spaces and Stuart and Simon were able to share their knowledge and expertise of the play, sport and outdoor fitness industry on the day and were invited to showcase some of their products. On display were some pieces of equipment in the shape of fantastic 3D 1:10 scale models in which the attendees showed a great deal of interest. Guest speakers included Tesco, Heritage Lottery Fund and Groundwork and interactive workshops took place celebrating 20 years of the Keep Britain Tidy and Green Flag Award.

The conference provided a brilliant opportunity to meet like-minded people – all of whom have a great passion for their local parks and making improvements to the wider communities and it is hoped that a similar event will be staged next year.
