Thorpe Green Car Park and Community Fitness project
Your Fund Surrey has granted £68,000 towards the project. The Thorpe Green Car Park and Community Fitness project will become a huge asset for the local community and help provide essential amenities to different members of the community. It will help have a transformational effect on an area beset with anti-social behaviour, into a hub to increase fitness levels, improve mental-health and well-being whilst allowing a much larger cross-section of the community to benefit from the open spaces of Thorpe Green. The new car park will provide access for disabled users, dog walkers, sports teams and families to enjoy the green spaces. The fitness area will connect people, free of charge, so they can socialise and benefit from the range of differing ability equipment.
