This week the Recreation Committee at the Parish Council initiated a broad study of the Community’s recreation needs. It does so at a time when we are emerging from our Covid experience which may have changed our approach to recreation. The Council needs to understand this as it pts together a plan for the provision of recreation facilities, including the Rec, over the medium term.
The study will comprise five stages (see the picture above) and will focus on building a robust evidence base of what the Community has today and how it uses it. It will then build a picture of how recreation is expected to develop before translating that into demand for facilities and specifically the Rec.
Neil Davies, Chair of the Recreation Committtee at the Parish Council says: ‘This is an important exercise and will enable us to invest in the Rec confident that it will respond to what the Community needs. It will also help us as we work with other bodies in the Histon and Impington to bring together more choices for our residents’.
‘it’s an ambitious program with a tight timetable and we’d be delighted if people came forward to help’
