About us

The Friends of Peace Memorial Park  were formed in 1997 to support the local authority's bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for a grant to upgrade and restore Peace Memorial Park in Long Street, Wigston Magna.   This bid was successful and the Park was awarded £524,000 to cover a 5-year project which was completed in 2003.   The Friends' role is one of community liaison and fundraising, both of which activities are important in the promotion and continuing development of Peace Memorial Park and its facilities.
