ABOUT: Par Track is a green space in the heart of the community known for its athletics track and football pitches. The local community came together and formed a community benefit society to take over the running of the site, gradually creating a health and wellbeing hub including a community café and a green gym. An NHS centre is based on the site and works in partnership with Par Track to use the resource to deliver social prescribing through their Healthy Living Programme.
PURPOSE OF INVESTMENT: This investment supports plans Par Track has to develop the site for the local community’s use: maintenance of the athletics track, alongside a café, gym, green trail, kids zone, skatepark and sports pitch. This investment also supports Par Track in maintaining services such as their Healthy Living Programme, a personalised approach to developing a healthier lifestyle through social prescribing. A strong start to the community ownership of Par Track also led to other projects: Par Track saved the community library in 2019, by taking on the running of the library with the help of a group of volunteers.
