SKDC wants to hear views on Wyndham Park

People who use Grantham's Wyndham Park are being asked for their views on the award-winning site.

With new park facilities, an extended car park and a £1m-plus investment from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, South Kesteven District Council is keen to hear feedback and suggestions for further improvements.

Last year Wyndham Park saw the introduction of an outdoor gym, table tennis tables, pay per play model boats and the installation of a defibrillator. In 2018 a Lottery-backed project was completed to restoreit to its former glory as a World War One memorial park.

Cllr Annie Mason, SKDC's Cabinet member for Communities, said: "We have the most wonderful community asset at Wyndham Park, and it's no coincidence that it has won the national Green Flag award for excellence for the last eight years.

"We are always keen to har the opinions of people who use the park to see what it adds to people's lives and how we might improve it. Green space has become even more important during the Coronavirus crisis and we want to know how people feel about the park, both now and looking to the future."

The survey, which closes on 20 September, is online at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/wyndham2020 and paper copies are available in the park's Visitor Centre. Posters in the park includue a QR code which, when scanned by a smart phone camera, pick up the link.

Questions include how safe people feel in the park, and whether SKDC's safety messaging on signs helped during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Cllr Mason also urged people to use the survey to sign up as volunteers helping to run the park.

She said: "We welcome people of all ages and from all backgrounds to help us in any way they can. If you have some spare time, would like to meet new people, and want to feel you are putting something back into the local community, let us know."
