Friends of Stamford Park
Stamford Park’s support group was established in 2005 and revived in 2013. The members are people who live in the area and have an interest or use the park.
FOSP, an independent non-profit organization, works with Trafford Borough council to improve and maintain Stamford Park. It has the following aims: restoring heritage features, increasing environmental value and community involvement; enhancing facilities; and promoting sport in a safe, accessible environment. These aims are being furthered by links with other local groups or organisations that have an interest.
FoSP doesn’t own or manage Stamford Park, that is one of the Altrincham council’s duties.. Instead they act as voice for park users, and they aim to include as many local people as possible . They are working with the council and other stakeholders to create management and improvement plans that will restore Stamford Park back to its former glory and ensure it has the appropriate facilities for the 21st Century.
