A huge thank you to everyone who has been involved in, and steered, the project so far. Your feedback and comments have been really valuable. Here are a few comments from the survey, but do feel free to add your thoughts / comments to this page too at any time:
”I think this is a wonderful idea”
” It would benefit the school and local people a lot”
”This will benefit the community hugely”
”It would be an asset for all villagers, I feel it would be well used”
”Will encourage more activity among young and old”
”This would be fantastic for the children”
”Great idea and a fantastic use of the space”
Thanks to everyone you completed the survey. We’ve had a great response and we now have a final plan for the area agreed. Next step is to get fundraising!
We are delighted to be kick starting this project working alongside Rossendale Borough Council, Water Village Trust and Water Primary School. The purpose of the project is to increase opportunity for leisure, sport and recreational activities for all members of the local community. The existing site which the school has used previously used for sports days and after school clubs or holiday clubs is no longer usable for children and the general public. The completed project (whatever that may be) would enable further opportunity for children and local residents to improve their physical health and well-being. Through initial consultations, a multipurpose sports pitch / facility could be central to the vision of the steering group. Further consultation is needed so watch this space and your letter box if you live or work in Water. Please leave a comment below in the meantime.
