What inspired your group to develop this project idea?
We wanted to make the glen, which is a fantastic place to walk, accessible to all in the community.

It is used by the entire village including dog walkers and families at the weekend. We improved the path so now people in wheel chairs and buggies have access to the glen.

We engaged the entire community with the project and people from all backgrounds and abilities were involved from families and children to people who kindly provided refreshments during construction.

We were very lucky in the fact that we did not experience any challenges. We put this down to excellent communication and the ability to attract a wide variety of different people to the project.

Use different types of communication such as social networking and a good website to target different audiences. However do not underestimate verbal communication and word of mouth.

What was the best part of being involved in a project like this?
Achieving the project and seeing other people recognise this. Creating community spirit and engaging with others for a common purpose.
