Thank You from Birmingham’s Parks
Thank you to everyone who took the time to fill in the council’s survey, wrote to your councillors or went to a public meeting. All of your comments showed how important our park keepers, rangers and play areas are and the council has decided to look for cuts elsewhere.
Swipe Cards – Thank You
Thank you to everyone who has helped out with the swipe card project. For the last 6 months your swipes have helped create the first database of its kind showing how much our parks are used – vital information when it comes to stopping further cuts to the budget. The trial finishes at the end of January but keep swiping until the end to make sure we raise the full £4,000 – money the park can use to fund more activities.
