Countesthorpe Country Park

 Countesthorpe Country Park Countesthorpe Parish Council are working closely with Blaby District Council to make the park more user-friendly. Visitors will have noticed that the grass has been cut and the areas around the paths have been cleared. A litter pick has been done by volunteers with a regular collection of the rubbish soon to be arranged. The conditions of the park due to excess rain have inhibited the work but as soon as the ground firms up the ditch is to be freed of the rubbish that over the years has piled up in it and the ponds cleared of unwanted weeds. Drainage will also be done in places that regularly flood.

The eventual plan is to create proper paths through to Blaby and linking up to the existing Z44 path, if funds can be obtained. Signage will also follow as will seats in favourable positions. It’s been obvious for a long time that the park needs drastic attention after it was left in such a poor condition by the developer, so it will take time to put right. For this to happen work will need to be done for a long time to come. Some of this work will be performed by volunteers who are being organised with Blaby District Council. To help facilitate their work a metal mobile is to be installed in the park to hold tools and machinery. A telephone number for people who are interested enough to volunteer will be provided asap so they can be properly trained.
