Delyn MP David Hanson visited the greenfield valley heritage park today to learn more about the bid for£1million heritage lottery funding to develop the site further. The scheme has passed the first round of application for the large grant and Mr Hanson was visiting to see plans to refurbish the site and to attract new visitors.
David Hanson MP said:
“The social, industrial and agricultural history of the valley and surrounding areas is fascinating and the proposals will improve the display and understanding of Greenfields history . Over the past 30 years I’ve seen the valley grow but it’s now the right time to create a refreshed site to appeal to both new visitors and local people. I’ve been happy to lend my support to the team applying for the grant and I hope it will be successful.”
Mary Auty of the trust said
“It’s important that the valley keeps developing for local people as well and ?visitors to the area – there are great benefits to greenfield if we can secure the grant.”
The team are being supported by consultants to get the final bid into shape
Ruth Mckew one of the consultants said
“It’s been great working with local people to get the bid together; over 80% of second stage bids succeed in getting the funds, so we hope now that greenfield will be one of them “
