Describe your project
Installation of outdoor fitness equipment on the village recreation ground for free community use to promote and ensure access to healthy activities.
How will your project benefit your local community?
As a rural Wiltshire village, access to health and well-being services can be difficult, particularly if individuals have little access top car or have mobility issues. This project will help the village community in two key ways. Firstly, the installation of this fitness equipment on our recreation ground will make sure that the whole community (including the disabled) have easy and free access to equipment to support healthy lifestyles. Secondly, it will reduce travel requirements to towns to gain access to recreation centres and, therefore, reducing traffic through the village.
Please give details of any support you have from your local community
As the Parish Council, we conducted a formal poll across the community for projects to improve the village and the installation of outdoor fitness equipment was the clear winner.
How big is your community? And how many people will benefit from your project?
All adults in the village over 13 (due to safe use constraints of the equipment). Based on census data this project has the capacity to assist 500+ people from the local community.
Tell us what you intend to spend the money on.
The purchase and installation of 6-8 pieces of outdoor fitness equipment.
