Cllrs stand shoulder to shoulder on Titchfield Park in Hucknall

Titchfield Park Centenary Celebration was a huge success

Hundreds of visitors flocked to Titchfield Park, Hucknall, to celebrate the park’s 100th Birthday, organised by Ashfield District Council.

Visitors to the park were treated to a variety of live music from local musician, Ollie Hayes, Hucknall choir, Torkard Ensemble, and two local bands, the Jury Dogs and The Spitfires who played songs from the past five decades.

Business and food stalls lined the oval on the park offering everything from freshly cooked Jamaican food and brownies, to handmade gifts, and a display of archaeological finds from the park.

Feel Good Families were on hand to entertain the younger visitors with a range of activities including rock painting, free face painting, bubbles, garden games, and mask designing sessions.

Cllr John Wilmott, Ward Councillor for Hucknall North, said:

“It was an absolutely wonderful day, enjoyed by all who attended. Visitors had a great time listening to the live music, eating some delicious food, and supporting local businesses.
“We were pleased by the large numbers of residents that turned up to celebrate our award-winning park’s landmark anniversary. We cannot wait to welcome the crowds back to Hucknall for the hugely popular Food and Drink Festival in August.”

Cllr Jim Blagden, Ward Councillor for Hucknall Central, said:

“Whilst the event was obviously impacted by the weather – we were so pleased that so many people turned up to support the event.  We are quite rightly proud of our park and the central part it has played in Hucknall life for a century. We are currently looking at increasing the events we hold in Titchfield Park and look forward to seeing resident’s soon.”
