CAN YOU HELP WYTHALL PARK?
Please contribute what you can to help maintain Wythall Park as a community facility.
At the start of the year we assessed we needed £30,000 to keep the facilities here for everyone’s benefit. So far we have received a loan, donations and a legacy totalling £10,300.
There is a population in the neighbourhood in excess of 11,500 - but only some 1,200 are members of Wythall Community.
Last year it cost £238,750 to operate the Park and facilities.
We raised £155,000 from rentals etc - £78k of it from Wythall Community Club, the balance from Park Hall, Britannia Room, Pitches, Park events and meeting rooms.
We started the year with the Christmas Tree collection which raised £577 in its first year.
We already have plans for new events in Park Hall to encourage a more varied entertainment.
We nearly have plans sorted to raise funds from car parking charges. These will start at 50p for 2 hours- only be during the daytime – Monday to Friday, and Saturday morning – so Club members will not have to pay when the bar is open. There will be permits available for purchase, at a substantial discount to members. This should raise in excess of £15,000 – covering the deficit and hopefully in a couple of years provide sufficient funds to do some resurfacing.
We need more members to come out and socialise, re-discover the art of conversation, try our excellent real ales – or a soft drink or tea / coffee. It is unfortunate that we don’t have a catering kitchen or a suitable location or funds for one.
We need more help and suggestions from people who will help organise an event or activity.
If you would like to contribute in any way I would love to hear from you.
