Benburb and District Community Association

With their Space & Place grant, the group will develop a walking trail, fitness pods, social hubs, a Grow Wild area and fencing around an existing sports pitch.

The Benburb and District Community Association was established in 2004 as an umbrella group for a range of community and voluntary organisations within the village, and in 2014 it was accepted as a charity by HMRC. It operates with a voluntary committee and delivers all its activities and programmes with the aid of volunteers.

With their Space & Place grant, the group will develop a walking trail, fitness pods, social hubs, a Grow Wild area and fencing around an existing sports pitch.

The project will allow the community to take part in activities aimed at improving health and wellbeing in an accessible, well-lit safe space.

The various elements have been developed in consultation with the community who made suggestions that have then been incorporated into the design process. This project will turn, what is an underused, neutral space within the village, into a useful, busy, shared space open to all and used for a range of activities aimed at enhancing the connections of the community.
