To provide an area where Health, fitness and fun can unite a community much needing social interaction and healthier life choices together.
Below are just a few ideas of what we are proposing to add to the project area.
We are a fairly new community Boxing club, who are looking to extend the project by creating an outside area for families to be able to come and socailise with other families, we as a community also realise that there are many famlies who suffer from social exclusion because of their disadvantaged or vunerable backgrounds,have members with a disability or who have to use walking aids and even wheelchair assistance, our club is situation on the first floor of a building making disabled access imposible, so this area would be designed around adapting to every need in the community, whilst also being able to use the outdoor training equipment to promote healthy lifestyle choices, we are planning a child friendly softplay area where they can have a sensory and visionary learning area, we will be putting the needs of the community a priority, and the family run community club feels that being able to have a safe, friendly enjoyable place will encourage social engagement and lots of community participation.
The Boxing Club has been very appealing to many of the families around the community, but we have found an area that needs fulfilling, as our classes start at the age of six and there are many young families in the community who have a large family unit, we are finding on average most families in the area have between 3-8 children in their family unit, this area would be a fantastic place to help families to feel part of the community project as some of the children are of the age to start the boxing training and the rest of the family would be able to use both facilities.
There is no other community project in the area that fulfills all the needs of what we think our community needs.
