Multi Use Games Area
Games for All is a group of Verwood residents who formed a committee with the
intention of fundraising for a multi use games area in the town (MUGA).
The facility is being proposed for the corner of the
Memorial Ground in the centre of Verwood and would be situated behind the
Memorial Hall. The group is independent of the local council and is chaired by
local resident Pat Morrow.
A consultation was held on the 4th April 2009 in the
Memorial Hall to give the public an
opportunity to vote on their favourite design and talk to members of the
committee as well as different exhibitors and see to how the plans would affect
the Memorial Ground.
The aim of the group is to provide a facility that all
members of the community will want to use. This includes facilities for older
residents, as a result, the consultation will feature exhibitors with equipment
specifically designed for older residents to try. Active Games for All do not
wish to encroach upon any existing users of the Memorial Ground and were keen to
show the public that the proposed MUGA will easily coexist with the other
activities that already take place in the ground.
