I am emailing you as someone who has expressed interest in the Leyton Sports Ground.
As you may know, last year the council put in a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for a large grant to improve the facilities at the Sports Ground. Unfortunately the bid was not successful however the HLF were very positive about the overall concept and gave us the feedback that we should go back to the community to gather more ideas which we are now doing, with a view to then putting in a revised bid.
Based on some initial conversations with community members we are now actively exploring the idea of including a food hub at the Sports Ground as part of the bid. Current ideas for the food hub include having a training kitchen and lots of different classes, a restaurant, café, food market and food themed activities and events.
We believe that the food hub would bring lots of benefit to the Sports Ground and to the local area, but we are really keen to hear what you think about this idea and would be very grateful if you could spare a few minutes to give your views.
Here is a short survey which will take 5-7 minutes to complete and it would be a massive help if you could take the time to do it.
Very best wishes
