Stella Tennant SUPERMODEL Stella Tennant has joined her family's fight to save a rundown playpark.
The Scots beauty is backing a campaign to protect Glenconner Park in Royston, Glasgow.
It was gifted to the people by her great-grandfather, millionaire industrialist Sir Charles Tennant, in 1906 on condition that it was never built on.
But Glasgow City Council lodged legal papers at the Court of Session on Friday in a bid to get permission to build a nursery school.
Last night, Stella's father Toby said: "The council is trying to drive a coach and horses through the conditions of the gift that clearly state the land should never be built on.

"The local people have formed themselves into an action group, The Friends of Glenconner.
"We are working with them on a proper legal response." He also has the backing of his brother Lord Glenconner, whose family estates include more than 4000 acres in Peeblesshire.
Friends of Glenconner chairwoman Anne Livingston said: "We do need nursery schools but there are other places in the area where they could be built."
Glasgow City Council said yesterday: "We consider the building of a new nursery at Glenconner Park is in the best possible interests of local residents.
"There are a number of legal matters to be resolved. It would be inappropriate to comment further."
