Swipe Cards – Thank You
Thank you to everyone who took part in the Swipe Card Project that ended in February. The results are fantastic, we have lots of information about how many people use the park for evidence if any more services are threatened with cuts. All that swiping also raised £4,000 to spend on more activities like tai chi, park fit & the bushcraft club. 986 people had a swipe card and there were 37,350 swipes. The card that swiped the most was card number 27903 with 592 swipes. 34 people swiped more than 200 times.
