Thank you for taking the time to find us! As this is our first post, we thought it polite to introduce ourselves. We are a group of seven local parents, with children aged from 2 to 6 years old. We all enjoy living in Thorpe St Andrew and plan on being here for many years to come……..hence we all see and will hopefully feel the benefits of volunteerng our time and experience, to enhance the local parks. Yes, our children may only be young, but as they grow we would love to have a stimulating play area for them to explore and interact with their friends, challenge them as they develop and inevitably, a safe, fun area to ‘hang out’. We really want to hear from local people who use Laundry Lane and Dussindale parks, before we can plan any changes. We intend to liaise with the local schools so we can hear feedback directly from the children.
We will also be visiting other groups within Thorpe to speak to a wide range of people about the recreational spaces; many people use them for walking the dog, exercising and taking advantage of the sports facilities. If you are involved in a local group and would like us to come to you, please email us.
In order for this to be successful, we need your feedback, we will let you know as soon as our questionnaire is available.
