Photo From Opening Day
The photo below was taken on the day in 1973 that Bestwood Country Park was officially opened.
From left to right we have:-
Denis Beeston, (Vernon) John Smale (Parish Council Chairman), Carol Mayes, Bernice Young, Cath Guest, Eddie Inskip, Ranger Anna Chylak and the late Gordon Pickering.
How proud they all look and rightly so - look at the park we have today thanks to their efforts.
