About Our Vale

About Our Vale

Crowdfunding is a fantastic way to turn unique project ideas into reality and we want your help to transform shared spaces, inspire visitors and enhance Aylesbury Vale. We know many people have fantastic ideas to improve spaces and places around the Vale but they don’t always know where to turn to change their idea into reality. By partnering with Spacehive, AVDC are coordinating support from the crowd to connect and empower local communities and help you shape the Vale for the better. We have funding based on certain criteria available through the Our Vale fund, but through Our Vale we're also bringing together other funders and supporters who can pledge to your exciting projects as well. So, why not get creative, get innovative and get involved?! If you’ve got an idea or just want to support one then Our Vale could give your project the boost it needs to succeed.

By spring 2019 there will be a brand new Paralympic Heritage Centre of 54sqm situated within Stoke Mandeville Stadium, close to the entrance and café. It will tell the story of Paralympic movement starting with its pioneer Dr Guttmann, followed by a timeline, the technical development of sports wheelchairs, celebrations and ceremonies and an area devoted to changing displays selected by the public from our growing collections. To enhance the visitor experience we wish to purchase a range of items and develop a range of activities that will enable our public to learn more and leave with a level of understanding about what makes a good inclusive society. We aim to make everything accessible, meeting a wide range of needs . Volunteers will be recruited to support this area of activity including the building of relationships with many communities, local schools, deaf and disabled groups.
