EVERY TIME you visit the park between now and 14th August we would like you to spend JUST 10 MINUTES counting HOW MANY CHILDREN GO INTO the playground down at Lakeside. Please exclude babies you think are under 6 months. If you’re in the park for a while, please feel free to count as many times as you like. We need as much information as possible from all days of the week and at different times of day/evening.
Please ensure you only count children ENTERING the park.  It may seem that to count users you should count people actually in the playground.  However if you do this, and after ten minutes count again, you are counting the same people twice.
Each time you have counted please email us at playground@forp.org stating the following:
1. Day / date
2. Time you started counting and time finished
3. Number of CHILDREN you saw going into the playground.
As you know, it is our aim to improve the children’s playground down at Lakeside and to do this we need to know how well used it is at the moment. The information you provide will help us to calculate this. We will also be carrying out interviews (both online and face to face) with adults who take children to the park.

Thanks in anticipation of your help.
Richard Chritchley, Chairman
