Some sad news regarding Pet’s Corner in Longford Park…

THE URGENT THREAT TO THE LONGFORD PARK PET’S CORNER
We need to bring to your attention the threat to close Pet’s Corner next to the cafe and playground. This seems like the depressingly inevitable result of cuts to local funding from central government, and one can imagine why if faced with threats to services like urgent social care, the enjoyment of children is given less priority. That doesn’t mean that we want to allow this wonderful facility to disappear.
There does appear to be an option for the community to approach Trafford with a viable alternative plan. We would fully support this and there are things that we might be able to do to help on a long term basis were the support to be there from the wider community.
Initially, if people want to meet to discuss this then we would be happy to provide the cafe as a meeting space and provide some free refreshments. We do not have time to liaise a campaign, but we will help in all other ways that we can.
Please spread this around your social networks so that all interested parties can gather together and give Pet’s Corner the very best chance of survival.
