To give a roof over our head we at the BLONDIN CONSORTIUM wish to build a pavilion to give access to park visitors and attract more. We would provide a 7 day a week cafe run by a consortium partner, giving autistic young people an opportunity to learn a skill. In addition further partners such as two local football groups will have the use as their changing area and a further partner, Community Payback, a base for running projects on a weekly basis within the park helping to maintain the green space. With ten partners in our fold including a local school, the local council, an environmental group and community led events group we aspire for more of the community to use the underused space known as Blondin Park.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
There is a need for facilities within Blondin Park for dog walkers, sports users, leisure users, and local schools and groups who have already been identified who need a project base and will enable them to enhance the visitor experience.
Steps to get it done:
Autistic young people can be taught skills including making jam, doggie treats and cakes giving them self worth. Community Payback can help maintain the grounds but must have access to a toilet. Local primary schools do not have any green space, with toilet facilities they will be able to enable their pupils to be active in the fresh air. One of the adult football groups offer a mentoring service and would welcome a space to be able to do this.
