Stewart Park

A group of young volunteers with an important role to play at a historic Middlesbrough park is being relaunched at the weekend.

The Stewart Park Young Rangers find out what makes the park tick ‘behind the scenes’ and get stuck in to practical tasks and fun activities.

The group – for seven to 13-year-olds – meets on the first Saturday of the month, with the relaunch taking place this Saturday, September 3 from 10.30am to noon.

All are welcome - meet at the Captain Cook Birthplace Museum.

Education and Events Officer Francine Marshall said: “This is a really exciting time for Stewart Park, with the restoration and improvement works already well under way.

“Joining the Young Rangers is a great opportunity for young people to see that work at first hand, and find out lots more about the day-to-day life of the park.

“There’s lots for them to get involved in, with the emphasis firmly on practical and fun activities.”
