Rushcliffe Borough Council have announced that Hollies Day Nurseries are set to sponsor Bridgford Park in West Bridgford over the next five years.
The partnership is further to Hollies’ support of the annual Lark in the Park event at the venue, the authority’s annual celebration of national playday.
The park also hosts the Council’s celebration of Armed Forces Day, the successful Proms in the Park, which took place on Saturday (June 29).
Hollies Day Nursery partner Becky Pike welcomed the news with the unveiling of a sign close to the Nursery car park entrance to the park to acknowledge the sponsorship.
She said: “We’re really pleased to continue our work with Rushcliffe Borough Council by sponsoring this brilliant park.
“We are always trying to do more to reach local families and we know that outdoor spaces such as this are really important for young children, for their outdoor learning for life and healthy lifestyles.”
Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Deputy Leader Cllr Debbie Mason visited the park to meet Becky and children from its nursery at 103 Loughborough Road in West Bridgford to unveil the new sign.
She said: “We’re delighted to welcome Hollies Day Nursery as a sponsor of Bridgford Park, building on their support of our annual Lark in the Park event.
“It’s wonderful that a local business with such strong community values is working in partnership with us. It will mean we can further invest into our popular events in the park, and across the Borough, to offer even more family friendly features.”
This year’s Lark in the Park will take place on Wednesday August 7.
There will be over 70 stalls and attractions including free shows and classes, charity and community stands, have-a-go sessions with local sports clubs plus fairground rides and inflatables.
