Legal Advisors to Wicksteed Park

Friday Legal Solicitors, the leading business focused law firm in North Northamptonshire, continue to act as legal advisors to Wicksteed Park and Wicksteed Charitable Trust.

Wicksteed Park is one of the oldest amusement parks in the Country starting life in the early twentieth century when its founder, Charles Wicksteed, purchased a tract of land to create a safe park that families could enjoy. In its beginnings, Wicksteed Park hosted simple playground equipment, but over the years Charles Wicksteed and his family descendants have continued to enhance the Park. It now boasts a plethora of modern park equipment including the brand new ‘Sway Rider’. A beautifully hand decorated ride with artwork that depicts the Park’s iconic attractions. At 30ft high, the ‘Sway Rider’ swings its passengers up and down through the air at speeds of up to 30 mph whilst tilted at 45 degrees. An adrenaline rush to remember.

Oliver Wicksteed, Chairman of the Wicksteed Charitable Trust and direct descendant of Charles Wicksteed, commented: “Friday Legal Solicitors have been advising the Wicksteed Charitable Trust as well as our trading subsidiary which operates the commercial attractions at the Park, for a number of years.   We continue to be impressed and reassured with their attention to detail, their plain English communications and the timeliness of their sage advice.   As a large property owning Charity and as a major commercial operator, it is comforting to have Friday Legal on hand to advise as and when issues arise. ”

Douglas Iles, Managing Director of Friday Legal Solicitors, said:  “It is a pleasure acting as Legal Advisors to Wicksteed Charitable Trust.   The Park and its operations are part of the fabric of life in Kettering for large parts of the population and it is satisfying to be able to play a part in assisting in the continued management, preservation and development of the business and the charitable works that take place at the Park.”
