New park made possible thanks to United Living Property Services

A new park in Broxtowe, providing 5,000 square metres of green space for residents to enjoy, has been made possible thanks to a donation from United Living Property Property Services (ULPS).

The new ‘pocket park’ also includes seating and a picnic area, complementing the adjacent green space at Inham Nook Recreation Ground. The site is well known locally following a series of strange happenings that led people to believe the area was haunted.

The donation was made to Broxtowe District Council by ULPS as part of its presence in the local area as the council’s modernisation partner, where it is delivering improvements to over 4000 properties, enabling communities to enjoy their updated homes for years.

On all of its projects, United Living work to deliver a lasting legacy for the local community.

To complement the park, local chainsaw sculptor, Peter Leadbeater, created a special log carving to reflect the site’s spooky history – an idea which was suggested as part of consultation work with local schools, Sunnyside Spencer Academy and Eskdale Junior School.

Wildflowers were planted at the site, with the help of pupils from local primary schools – Eskdale Junior School, Sunnyside Spencer Academy and Alderman Pounder Infant and Nursery School.

Andrew Broadbent, Divisional Director, United Living Property Services, said: “Supporting Bassetlaw District Council on this project is just one of the ways we can ensure we are creating great places for people to live far into the future, as well as helping us to maintain our commitment of being a responsible business. 

It was fantastic to be able to support Bassetlaw District Council and local schools on this important project, and we look forward to seeing the new park flourish in the coming months and years ahead”. 

Portfolio holder for the Environment at Bassetlaw District Council, Councillor Helen Skinner, said: “The new pocket park will bring many benefits to Broxtowe. As well as increasing areas of informal grassland and encouraging wildlife to flourish, we hope the park’s location will attract many visitors who will be captivated by Ghost House Lane’s fascinating history. 

It is also fantastic to see the efforts of Green Rewards users in action as this sustainability project is put in place, and it is great that a new generation of residents has been involved in planting the wildflowers.”
