BUDDING photographers are being urged to snap up the remaining places on a community project.

The free event is part of the three-year Wild Green Spaces in Hartlepool project that aims to involve local people in the development and improvement of the town’s most popular green spaces, including Ward Jackson Park, Burn Valley Gardens and Seaton and Rossmere parks.

It is aimed at promoting the project and the wealth of nature available in Hartlepool, and an exhibition of photographs taken is to be staged in the Place in the Park in Ward Jackson Park.

The Wild Green Spaces in Hartlepool project, which has been awarded more than £350,000 National Lottery cash, is being funded by Natural England through its Access to Nature initiative which is part of the Big Lottery Fund’s Changing Spaces programme.

The project was launched following a successful bid by Hartlepool Borough Council in partnership with the Environment Agency and the Burn Valley Project Steering Group whose members include local residents, councillors and organisations such as the Local Access Forum and Sustrans.

The event will take place from 10am to 3pm on Saturday and participants should meet at the Place in the Park in Ward Jackson Park.
