VOLUNTEERS are counting on people going into East London’s Victoria Park.
It’s all part of Tower Hamlets council’s bid for Lottery funding to revamp the park.
The Town Hall needs to know just how popular the East End’s popular open space really is.
So volunteers from the Bow community centre are doing a head count over the coming months.
Plans to regenerate the park in time for the 2012 Olympics are being worked up in more detail with public consultations.

The plans include another caf�, an urban beach, water features, meadow, old English gardens and better sports facilities.
They are being submitted in December to the Parks for People joint programme between the Big Lottery and Heritage Lottery funds, coupled with Town Hall investment, which would total �12 million. The cash, if the bid succeeds, would be the largest investment Vicky Park has had since its creation in the 1840s.
