Released on 13 September 2018

South Staffordshire council news

A new community room at Baggeridge Country Park in Gospel End will open officially on Tuesday 18 September 2018 and cutting the ribbon at 11.30am will be Councillor Len Bates BEM, Chairman of South Staffordshire Council, and Councillor Mary Bond, Cabinet Member for Community Services.

With an estimated 150,000 visitors enjoying the 152 acres of parkland at Baggeridge Country Park every year, the new community room is a welcome addition to the park's facilities. The opening event will include a demonstration of the miniature railway and there will be music and refreshments to celebrate the opening.

The community room will be known as the 'The Lydiate Room', a name that many locals will recognise as a local hill and the name itself features on old maps of the area. Situated close to the miniature railway, this spacious room measures 10 by 10 metres and is perfect for educational workshops, children's parties, functions, conferences, corporate meetings and events. It even has its own self-catering kitchen and catering is also available from the onsite tea room. Car parking is available nearby and educational, corporate and team building activities are available on request.

South Staffordshire Council is responsible for maintaining Baggeridge Country Park and Councillor Len Bates BEM, Chairman of South Staffordshire, welcomed the opening of the 'The Lydiate Room'. “This new facility provides a very useful indoor event space and is a much needed resource for the park. I'm sure it will be used by many visitors and I'm delighted that we have such a great community room right here in the beautiful grounds of Baggeridge Country Park."
