The mains aim of our organisation is the regeneration of the children's play park, which is currently very run down. We also want to get some equipment that will be inclusive for people with disabilities, which the park doesn't currently have. To bring the community together, we have already arranged some events such as a sports day, litter picking and fence painting in the park. We want people to know their neighbours and people in the local area and to bring the community together. We have already met lots of people in the area and had over 30 volunteers attend the fence painting and we hope to continue this. We are also starting a gardening group. This will encourage people in the community who may be lonely, to come out for an hour a week and meet people.
We have already arranged some community days including litter picking and fence painting and have a fun run planned for July. Once the park has been refurbished, we are planning an opening party, a teddy bears picnic and a scavenger hunt.
