Stagecoach spruces up historical park for Community and Environment week

Yesterday, school children, local organisations and Stagecoach Manchester employees celebrated the unveiling of the newly revamped Davyhulme Park in Urmston.

Working with the One Trafford Partnership and Davyhulme Primary School, Stagecoach Manchester has transformed the park, planting a wide range of plants and shrubs throughout the space and installing a wood-sculpted bus. The bus replicates the sculpture in the new Green Flag park, Hullard Park, which benefited from a similar makeover in 2016.

The Davyhulme Park scheme was part of the Stagecoach Manchester’s annual Community and Environment week, which encourages people to learn about their surroundings and the environmental benefits of public transport.

Elisabeth Tasker, Stagecoach Manchester managing director, said: “Our annual Community and Environment week offers a number of benefits; not only does it help us engage with our customers and employees, it is also a chance to raise awareness of schemes that have a direct and long-lasting effect on local communities, and showcase the lengths we go to reduce our environmental impact.

“Projects like the Davyhulme Park revamp are a great way to create spaces that local residents can enjoy. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to teach children from surrounding schools the importance of preserving the areas where they live and may one day work.”

With guidance from other volunteers, year five and six pupils from Davyhulme Primary School learned how to plant the flowers and shrubs, before setting them in the ground.

Miss Brooks, Deputy Head Teacher at Davyhulme Primary School, said: “It’s really important for our pupils to be involved in nature. As we know, children today often spend a lot of time inside, and we want to encourage them to spend as much time outside as possible.

“Davyhulme Park is a space the children use a lot, so we’re pleased they could be a part of the redevelopment, and also be involved in a project that will benefit the local community.”

Executive Member for Environment, Air Quality and Climate Change, Councillor Stephen Adshead, added: “The pupils from Davyhulme Primary School had such enthusiasm and have all done a brilliant job. The garden will be invaluable to the local community, and it’s something that would not have been possible without support from Stagecoach Manchester.”

“One Trafford enjoyed volunteering their time to bring something to the Trafford community. This has been a fantastic opportunity to not only increase the diversity of flora in the park, but also work in partnership with Davyhulme Primary School and Stagecoach.”
