Council looks to further boost park's leisure offering

Businesses, groups and individuals are being invited to put forward ideas for new community leisure activities at Daventry Country Park.


Daventry District Council wants to hear from suitably experienced applicants wishing to deliver activities to further improve the Green Flag award-winning park, off Northern Way.


From kayaking to bush craft, leadership courses to wildlife study – the possibilities for leisure programmes are wide-ranging.


Other activities could include inflatable play, orienteering, volunteering, holiday programmes, disability or equal opportunities group work and coaching sessions. 


We welcome ideas for other leisure sessions that have proved popular with the public and have been successfully run by the organisation or individual putting them forward are encouraged too.


Applicants must have a proven track record of putting on popular, value-for-money activities safely. They must also provide evidence of a risk-management strategy, be insured up to £5 million for public liability, comply with all the regulations or approved practices related to their activities and ensure they have appropriately trained staff.


It is expected the new licence would begin in March 2018 and run for three years with the potential to extend, depending on the needs of the licensee and what they are offering. 


Application forms can be requested by e-mail from procurement@daventrydc.gov.uk


The closing date for submissions is midday on Friday 3 November 2017.
