Active People Active Parks Programme concludes

All good things have to come to an end and sadly our work with the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, as part of their Active People Active Parks (APAP) programme, draws to a close at the end of this month.  APAP was a flagship participation project for the LLDC which involved a variety of 25 partner organisations.


We had the unique opportunity to work,  not only individually, but also in conjunction with a range of partners to deliver activities in and around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London.  With the aim of maximising the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, by encouraging local residents to participate in sport and physical activity, the 4-year statistics for the programme certainly demonstrate the amazing work that has taken place.


The Community Golf team is incredibly proud of what we delivered across the programme, which included regular Golf Skills, Beach Golf, Golf in the Park and local school sessions.  Alongside these regular sessions, we brought golf to a vast array of events which included International Womens Day, Liberty Festival, National Paralympic Day, Time to Shine and the Wellbeing Games to name but a few.  We feel privileged to have built up an incredible array of participation memories and to have worked with such a wide range of individuals.


Unearthing a huge enthusiasm for golf in East London through our work with the Active People Active Parks programme is an extraordinary platform from which we will continue to build.  We are continuing to work with  APAP partners in the area and across a range of new projects with new Funders.
