Vote for our project in the Aviva Community Fund!
Voting opened on 23rd October and the deadline is 20th November 2018. We need as many votes as we can to show support for our bid to raise money to re-surface the greenspace at Onchan Park. Go online to register at community-fund.aviva.co.uk. Everyone gets 10 votes for their favourite projects. To find ours search for Onchan Park in the Health and Wellbeing category. Projects within this category should aim to make people feel better on a number of levels, improving physical, mental and emotional health and boosting social interaction. The top three projects with the most votes will go to the final judging stages and we will find out early next year if we will receive any funding.
Please support us once again by giving us your votes to support the development of Onchan Park for the whole community.
Have a look at our project page here. In recent years the old bowling green has been used as a green space for community events and as a play area for local children and teenagers. The surface of the bowling green has degraded and is full of holes and is surrounded by gullies. The Friends of Onchan Park group are looking to regenerate this area with hard-wearing grass which is fit for purpose, to fill in the gullies and re-establish the green space to include suitable, inclusive access so the area can be used by all groups.
Update 14/12/18: Unfortunately, in spite of all the support and votes that we received, we didn’t make it to the final of the Aviva Community Fund this year.
