Although COMFund project tenure is about to end, I feel I have full energy to continue with my project and take the learning experiences forward. This is also giving me the opportunity to evaluate my work by exploring what worked and what was difficult to achieve, what lessons I have learned to take these experiences forward, such as power play, long term conflict that interfered my project work and interrupted its flow. Considering all these and with the ambition of learning new ideas, listening to dreams and visions of others, I have recently broadened my area of listening and engaging with community for my COMFund project. The area where I am working is a neighbourhood close to the Heartland Hospital, bordering with East Bordesley Green. This area is also under Hodgehill district. I have noticed people from this area pass by the Ideal park quite often. There is also the Kingfisher conservation park located closed to this neighbourhood. One of the reasons that I have decided to broaden my area of listenings in this location is because I am hoping residents may identify some issues in their park which are common to those in Ideal park and may come up with some ideas to resolve the problems. Engaging with the residents of this aera exposed me to some fresh ideas on how do people think about their local issues, such as smelly clogged streams from the River Cole that run through the park, sporadic fly tipping in the park, and how would they like to take part to resolve some of those problems, what are their knowledge about Localism Act, and if so, whether they would like to know about this? etc. Some of the residents in this area are also aware of the Ideal park and the issues surrounding its run down condition, such as power politics, mistrust among stakeholders groups etc. Some of them also compared and contrasted the issues surrounding Kingfisher conservation park with the Ideal park. As my listening continues, I am meeting few more enthusiast people in this area who’re showing interest to become volunteers and I also spoken to one of the local community leaders who has a vision about the area, and also a member of the Friends gorup of this Kingfisher Park. I’ve set up an appointment to meet the Friends group.
