Lovely to see on the river, but perhaps a bit too close for comfort when it is immediately behind you, and you are in a coracle. This was the experience of Mike Gorski. Mike regularly takes photos from his coracle on the River Yare upstream of Cringleford Bridge.
An economics student at the University of East Anglia, as part of her dissertation, is investigating the usage of greenspace and parks in Norwich and how these are related to health outcomes and attitudes of Norwich residents.
“There is considerable evidence that usage of and access to green spaces can significantly improve health outcomes in the population. However, throughout the UK, studies have shown that green space is unequally distributed. There is limited research investigating the actual usage of green spaces and how it varies across different urban areas. I hope to help investigate this with my dissertation and see how changes could be made to benefit the Norwich population.”
