Finally after two years of fundraising by the residents of Bulwark (and surrounding roads) the residents had the chance to pick their preferred park. Two proposals out of the seven who submitted bids were put to the residents of the area to pick the favoured park. This event before took place last week at the Helston Children’s Centre.
Both the final two bids were great, so it was always going to be difficult to pick a winner. And a winner was selected by the residents voting for their favourite plan. It was great to see seventy-one adults and children turn up and vote. It was close, with the winning bid from Proludic having 39 votes, with the runner-up Hags having 32 votes.
The equipment will be ordered very soon, and as soon as the equipment arrives work will start on the new park. Thanks should go to Cornwall Council’s procurement team, Cormac and the environment dept for helping the residents in the process. Of course none of this would have been possible without the fundraising from the residents and grant funding from SITA, Helston TC and the Downsland Trust.
