Archdeacon of Derry and people of Christ Church welcome Brooke Park Funding Boost

Diocesan News

Added on 27/07/2012

Archdeacon Robert Miller, who is also Rector of Christ Church Parish on Infirmary Road, has joined with the members of his parish in welcoming the news that Brooke Park is to be refurbished with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, in the form of a £1.45 million grant.

Archdeacon Miller said, ‘Christ Church Parish Church borders directly onto Brooke Park. I am absolutely delighted that Derry City Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund have shown great imagination for the future of the Park. This represents a belief in the future.’ He continued ‘Brooke Park is a wonderful resource for the people of our local community. As Christ Church is also committed to enhancing our facilities for the good of local people we look forward to the developments that will soon take place.’

The Council has successfully secured Stage 2 funding from the HLF through their Parks for People Programme to support the estimated £5m Regeneration of Brooke Park Project, which will see a total regeneration of the park including its parkland, sports and leisure facilities.
