Thank you all for the lovely comments and incredible support. It has been a stressful week fighting to keep as many classes as possible but all worth it! I am totally in love with the village and the incredible community that has developed here. The team and I are delighted that we can continue to provide you with a varied programme to Turn Up Tone Up at! A full email update to follow with details of the classes and when you can get booking. We hope to welcome veteran and virgin Parkers at the new sessions. With sincere thanks for your invaluable support, Born

I've only ever attended around 5 classes since June 2014 (wrong times for me) but have always supported Our Parks as an organisation anyway and have more than appreciated that my landlord has funded for this long and will continue for a while longer with the 5. I know so many people have benefitted from the classes, it just a shame that that isn't being backed up by pledges. Good luck and I hope any further crowd funding will get there in the end.

I haven't personally attended any of the Our Parks classes, however I think it is a fantastic service and I know that many of my neighbours are regulars. I've contributed to do my bit to ensure these classes (in whatever capacity) remain in East Village for the benefit of my community. Aniket

Thank you so much for working so hard for Us. My life is definitely better! I am fitter, I have more fun and I feel part of a great group.

I'm so lucky to have Our Parks fitness on my doorstep at East Village! It has been a great opportunity to have fun and get fit in motivational classes by great coaches, as well as given me the chance to meet some friendly faces within the community. Thanks Born and Our Park coaches for making this happen!

Our Parks is a wonderful initiative which not only has the individual benefit of improving fitness, but also brings us, the community, together. The coaches have been fantastic in creating a great atmosphere and delivering high quality, super fun classes. Thank you Our Parks! Let's all contribute to keep the programme growing!

Kieon/Born. Thanks for all the fun, friendly and professional exercise classes. We all have enjoyed them immensely and hope they may continue in East Village. I feel we have all built up a great rapport. Let's keep it going. Nick

Our Parks has been a great addition to the East Village community and I really do hope it continues. Big shout out to Kieon and Constanza and of course Born who without him we wouldn't have benefited from this great initiative in the first place. I have made friends, kept fit (run PB's in races, cheers Kieon!) and always come away from sessions feeling positive, torrential rain (yes that's 8 miles and yoga flow back to back in that) and shine!

I totally agree with the previous comments. I've only just started going to these sessions but it would be a great shame if they stopped and I'm also sure most residents probably aren't aware of them. Hoping they carry on and keep growing!

Thanks for the below Andrew, you have always been such an advocate and dear friend of the programme. Crystal and Adam thank you so much for sharing the values which we all deem so vital for health and equality within our communities! I will fight to keep it going no matter what and am amazed by the support of the community.

Come on everyone! Let's keep those pledges coming in! We can do this! Our Parks plays such an integral role in our East Village community.

Our Parks has become a defining aspect of the East Village community - thank you for bringing so many of us together to get fit, make friends and have fun. I hope we can make it permanent!

I really hope we can continue the Our Parks programme in East Village. I still get the feeling that it could be much bigger and that only relatively few residents are aware of the programme. It would be such a shame to cut it back now, after only just over a year. I will be writing to the MP as well and encourage others to do so.
