I have had some contact from two members of the public who have independently seen my posters in the park – this is quite exciting! Information packs and letters of consent have been sent out.

I spoke with Jacques last week and he suggested contacting the local newspaper and local radio stations to see if they might be interested in my research as a news feature and so drum up some interest; I contacted these and await any response.

Further contact has also been made with the Council’s green spaces department and the community cohesion officer; both have been very helpful.

I submitted an abstract for consideration at the Leisure Studies 2014 conference. I should have data to discuss by then. It is strange to think of this future me, armed with data and a raft of problems that I have yet to encounter.
