You'll probably know that for the last three or four years we have been supporting the Friends of Ellington Park in their efforts to secure a Heritage Lottery Fund Grant (HLF) for the renovation of this historic park. After three years we finally managed to persuade Thanet District Council to support the bid and we obtained what is called a Stage 1 Pass and a grant of £148,000 from HLF Parks For People to develop the outline proposal into a Stage 2 Bid for £1.7m to restore the park to its former glory.
As part of the ongoing Stage 2 Bid we are doing a survey of residents in the area to find out what they think are the priorities for them as park users. This will help to take residents preferences into account as we finalise the Stage 2 Bid. We would be very grateful if you could complete the on line survey form which can be found at 
Its very easy to do and if you submit the form before 30th Sept your name will be included in a draw to receive a £20 prize!
