Thank you to everyone who participated in the Parks consultation exercise at the start of the year. 143 people responded to our survey, more than 20 others participated in our focus groups and approx 50 people spoke to AEA volunteers at community events. Results revealed:
The research is comprehensive and conclusive. There is much potential to increase park usage and associated health and well-being benefits. Existing facilities are not meeting expectations and in some cases play equipment is not ‘fit for purpose’.
The community has given us a clear indication of what improvements it would like to see made. Now all we need to do is raise the 60K shortfall in funding needed to make it happen! If you, your business or community group would like to support Park fundraising efforts, please do get in touch. Any contributions ( however small) will help us develop Abernethy Parks so that more people in the community can enjoy and benefit from them, both today and in years to come.
