The Northern Meeting Park to be subject of public survey.

MEMBERS of the public have been invited to have their say on the future of the historic and beautiful Northern Meeting Park in the shadow of St Andrews Cathedral.

A survey has been launched by High Life Highland (HLH) on behalf of the Highland Council asking people what the venue means to them.

With Levelling Up funding already in place to conserve the park's historic grandstand building and to improve its facilities, HLH is currently developing ideas for creating interpretation aimed at telling the story of the park to local people and visitors.

Possibilities include an exhibition in the new pavilion building, an interpretive trail outside and webpages and/or an app.

The aim would be to work with the local community to identify the stories to be told and the methods of telling them.

Whether you are or were a pupil at one of the local schools who had their sports days or played football in the park, one of the Highland dancers who performed at summer shows, a competitor at Highand games held there, a cricketer, or someone who has enjoyed or performed at one of the many concerts and festivals the park has hosted, this project would enable you to share your memories and stories, and find out what the park means to other people.

Plans include a series of free and fun community heritage research workshops, tours of the park and surrounding area, etc.

The aim of this survey is to gather your ideas and views. The survey is at https://surveys.highlifehighland.com/s3/NMP-COMMUNITY-HERITAGE-PROJECT?fbclid=IwAR2GLbOC03mBpio1HMeclHB3VG15VBbnCi-Q9jicRy5DRL6dS9yKYyhIaD8

HLH says all responses are confidential and you don’t need to answer all the questions.
