Carlton park group’s funding plea


A community group has appealed for people to get behind their bid for cash to buy table tennis tables for a park they recently saved from closure.

Friends of Onchan Park, a community group which develop and promote Oakdale Rd Park, hope to win funding as part of the Aviva Community Fund. The group need votes from people in the local community to increase their chances of winning funding of £7,500- which they hope will provide two table tennis tables and a secure base. Only projects with the most votes will become finalists, so additional support is vital.

Research by the group showed that the nearest outdoor table tennis facility is at the National Ice Arena, 2.2 miles away from Onchan Park. The Friends group now hope that having an outdoor table tennis area with two tables and a supply of bats and balls would allow a large population to access this inclusive and enjoyable sport.

Alison Pritchard, chair of Friends of Onchan Park, said:  “This year, local schoolchildren children helped to save the park with their colourful artwork on the pavilion. Now it is time for the adults to help develop the facilities on the park to create a space worth visiting, by voting for our funding bid.”
