HLF Arts Project

In 2015 PKC (funded by Heritage Lottery Fund) commissioned local artist June McEwan to revive and complete The MacRosty Park Arts Project. 

The community art project was based around MacRosty Park and was to celebrate the history of the park and its regeneration.  June hosted workshops, sing-alongs and a very active Facebook Page during the project.

‘the 112 year-old park holds many stories and it is hoped that this will be an opportunity to bring some stories to life’ June McEwan, May 2015

A few of the press cuttings from the project can be viewed below and the outcomes of the project can be accessed via this website.

This includes:

  • ‘Flora and the Noble Fir Tree’ short story and animation
  • MacRosty Memories – stories from park users past and present
  • A ramble through MacRosty with Colin Mayall
  • MacRosty Park Music
