A FUNDRAISER aimed at improving Ford Park in Ulverston has come to an end.

With aims to raise £5,000, the fundraiser fell just short, ending on £4,290.

The money raised will be used to add information to the park's arboretum, created in 2019, about the native trees, their history, characteristics and place in British culture.

On their fundraising page, those behind Ford Park said they aimed to 'plant native wildflower species on the park to provide habitats for wildlife, increase our community's knowledge, appreciation and understanding of our native tree species, enabling people to take this new knowledge and understanding with them from the park to local woodlands, and increase appreciation and understanding of our native wildflowers and the insects dependant on them through fun, accessible and informal learning.'

Ford Park can be visited seven days a week and has free parking.
