Vulcan Park

Projects

Since taking over the park in 2018, Workington Town Council has worked on a number of improvements and projects, including:

Grow Well West Cumbria

Grow Well West Cumbria is a Community Interest Company with a small community garden based near the ‘Old Man Shelter’ in Vulcan Park. The group meet regularly to work on the garden, to socialise, and to learn new skills.  Anyone can join the group and no experience is required. The group meet every Thursday from 10am to 12noon. For more details about the group, please contact: grow-well@hotmail.com

 

Wildflora Meadow

Workington Town Council worked with Cumbria Wildlife Trust as part of the #GetCumbriaBuzzing project. More than 100 children and adults from the local community helped to plant 450 plugs and 1 kilo of wildflower seeds to create a large wildflora meadow in the middle of the park. To learn more about #GetCumbriaBuzzing and how you can get involved in future projects check out the Cumbria Wildlife Trust website:

Purple4Polio

Since 2016 we have been working with Derwent Rotary and Workington Rotary to plant purple crocuses across the town, including Vulcan Park, in support of the Rotary International’s ‘Purple4Polio’ campaign. Purple4Polio is a campaign that fundraises for the eradication of polio and has contributed towards polio-endemic countries dropping from 125 to just three.

We are continuing to make improvements and welcome any suggestions using the form on our contacts page.
