The project has helped make the parklands more inclusive to the wider community by extending the space and enabling wheelchair access, with more and more people drawn to the park, which proved to be particularly popular during lockdown.
“People frequently tell us how much they appreciate the development,” said Lorna Edwards, Chairperson, Wembdon PACT. “One resident was advised by her doctor to take regular walks to improve her strength.
“Now, because of the tarmac pathways, she can access the park and is finding she is able to walk a little further with each visit. Without funding from the HPC Community Fund this would never have happened. It has made a huge impact on people and it’s great to see the parklands in all its glory!”
