100days, 100images, 100years
Wicksteed Park is celebrating its centenary this year having officially opened in May 1921.
To recognise this milestone we are sharing a daily image of photos and memorabilia over for 100 days from May to September, these have been collected through the decades and held in the archive.
We will be sharing via our Wicksteed Park Heritage on Instagram and Facebook.
We are looking to further build the archive and are asking people to look in their cupboards, lofts or mobile downloads for images and memorabilia.
If you have anything you wish to share and help build the archive for the future please get in touch with Tracey Clarke our Community and Heritage Manager via email email@example.com for further details.
Wicksteed Charitable Trust
The Wicksteed Charitable Trust receives no regular external funding to help maintain the park as a truly unique, freely accessible public space. You can help to preserve the park for future generations by making donations. All money raised is used to help maintain the park and its grounds.
