Good news for the residents of Romford! A funding agreement has been recently unveiled, and it's set to enhance the recreational opportunities available to the community. The L.T.A. Tennis Foundation, in collaboration with the British Government's Parks Tennis Project and Havering Council, has embarked on a joint initiative to rejuvenate and renovate tennis courts in several parks across the constituency. This investment promises to invigorate local outdoor spaces and encourage physical activity among people of all ages.
The parks set to benefit from this endeavor are no small part of the community fabric. Raphael's Park, Rise Park, Lodge Farm Park, Hylands Park, and Haynes Park are poised to receive a much-needed facelift that will not only enhance their aesthetic appeal but also provide a wonderful avenue for individuals to engage in a healthy and social pastime.
This revitalisation comes at the price tage of a substantial commitment of £390,000 across Havering. The Park Tennis Project, a core component of this investment, holds the promise of breathing new life into underutilised or deteriorated tennis courts, creating vibrant spaces for the community to come together and enjoy the benefits of physical activity.
