All pumped up!

Young cyclists at Inverness Pump Track

From a choice of five options, there was a massive majority in favour of developing the Curling Pond area into a Pump Track Skills area.  The survey carried out in the Community Hall on 15th September resulted in 115 questionnaires being completed and 112 people voting for this option, against a combined total vote of 40 for all other alternatives.  The survey was facilitated by the Community Company, with the results being collated and analysed independently by VABS.

Many thanks to everyone, young and old, who came along to cast their vote and express their views which resulted in this outcome. A number of comments were made, which are still being collated, but the headline results are shown below.

Following this decisive result, the next step is to form a group to take forward the project.  There will be some hurdles to overcome along the way, first and foremost of which will be to establish ownership of the site – it currently does not belong to anyone. The way forward on how to incorporate the project group and clear the first hurdle will be discussed at Boat of Garten Community Company’s meeting on Wednesday, 26th September at 7.30pm.  PLEASE come along and contribute your thoughts and ideas to the meeting – all are welcome.
