Total so far:
We successfully raised funding for the installation of a full course. We created a crowdfunding campaign, and we also pursued private grant funding through the Landfills Community Fund scheme of Veolia, a large waste management company. We were successful with both tracks! Trafford council additionally committed some match funding and agreed to manage the course installation process. The total funding amount allowed us to include some more aspirational elements in the course design, such as some earthworks to add variety to the flat landscape, and planting 68 large and relatively mature trees. Because the site struggles with water drainage problems in the winter months and is often muddy, we were also able to prioritise the installation of raised teepads of textured concrete.
