NEW DRINKING FOUNTAIN 

A new drinking fountain has been installed at High Lea Park, adding to the already improved facilities now in the park.

Stephen Lewis, New Mills Town Councils Park Manager, brought the idea to the Council after listening to the views of the people using the park during a  very busy time for the park last year. Once it has been approved by Council, which was a unanimous descision, Deborah Garratt who is the Council's Clerical Assistant, organised the purchase of the fountain.

When visiting the Park you can now use, the new drinking fountain, or read about it, on the blog page from the supplier if you want to type the address below into your browser.

New Mills Town Council Park Manager Stephen Lewis, had in the run up to the launch of the National Apprenticeship Week, identified the need for an Apprentice, completed the necessary paperwork, completed the job description, advertised the post, and was the lead panel member at interview.

It is with great pleasure that it can be announced that, an apprentice was appointed to his Parks team, during March.
