Tuesday 27th January 2015, an exciting day for Mayow Park and a good start to the new year . . . work starts to install the outdoor gym and trim trail.
Wind the clock back to the summer of 2014. The Friends of Mayow Park were told that there had been a successful bid for funding for fitness equipment in the park. The Friends wanted park users to be consulted so Glendale prepared a survey in late August. We had 10 days to get the survey completed. 
Some of the Friends committee, along with Tunde, who was our park keeper at that time, gave out the survey sheets to families, dog walkers, joggers, fitness fanatics, in fact anyone who said they used the park and was willing to fill in the form. People were asked what percentage of the available fund they would like to be spent on an outdoor gym and how much on a fitness trail and to mark it on a scale. When the results were in, 169 forms were counted: results 70%  outdoor gym and 30% fitness trail.

 Glendale and Lewisham sent out tenders. I don't remember the name of the firm that was finally chosen but I will ask. We will see the final outcome in about a week.
