We are taking all the suggestions from our Parkend Vision survey seriously and starting to promote them in terms of grant applications etc. The survey results can be found at www.parkendvillage.uk
1. The BBC will be filming in the village from 6th-10th April and have made a very kind offer to give a donation towards a new playground for families to meet and play in the village. We haven't had details yet but whatever we get will allow us to start the process of planning, budgeting and creating this much needed resource for the village. Please let us know what you would like to see in the playground, something for all ages and inclusive. Pictures and drawings of your favourite things would be wonderful.
2. We have been selected as one of 4 Forest of Dean locations to create a Community Digital Hub to provide free-to-use internet hosted by community buildings with improved connections across the village.
3. We really need everyone to get behind the idea of a Community Benefit Society which will give us a funding stream and give residents a say in what happens.
