The ripples of Miss Represented travel wide, and Park Life is a particularly special campaign that has sprung from two of our alumni Caitlin Smith and Evie Martin.
Whilst in the minibus on tour, Caitlin and Evie had a conversation about how they felt disappointed with the parks in the area that they live. They began the Parklife campaign raising awareness and funds for better parks in Whitehawk, drumming up the support of fellow residents, producing an enormously successful big picnic event, and having meetings with the council.
And in 2021…. The park was built!!!! This is such an incredible achievement.
The Parklife campaign goes from strength to strength with new plans for a skatepark and ongoing community development and consultation work.
