Testimonials

Pine Grove Park, Fort William

We, as a small committee of volunteers, needed help to bring our dream of a new Playpark to our 10+acre site in Pine Grove, Plantation, Fort William. We got that help in the form of “Alan Jones Associates” with their knowledge and professionalism. I know for sure that without his input we would never have got this major project to fruition. Alan helped us secure £237,000 towards our project and successfully delivered it to completion.

Highland Skate Park Association

Alan assisted with the strategy and our funding applications to the Big Lottery, sportscotland and Active Places. He is also managing both the Inverness and Muir of Ord projects. Alan has valuable contacts with the Highland Council, with leisure contractors and with the various funding bodies. Between both projects Alan assisted in securing £650,000 towards project costs He is reliable, well organised and works hard so I have no hesitation in recommending him to help with similar projects.

Esk Road 21st Century Play Area

Your input, particularly your engagement with our pupils was extraordinary and raised their enthusiasm and levels of confidence. Your technical knowledge of the process significantly helped to maintain the momentum and achieve a very successful outcome. We also appreciate that you put in significant amounts of your time over and above any contracted for and fully appreciate your generosity.

Inshes Park

Throughout the process of negotiating and securing the funding Alan Jones Associates took all the burden off our Association and exceeded our expectations. Alan has secured just under half a million pounds towards the park's development and we couldn't have achieved this without his efforts. The company has guided our Association in a very positive way and I have no hesitation in recommending the company for project managing and the provision of children's play areas irrespective of the scale or size of the project

Highland All Abilities Cycling Centre

In 2012, Alan Jones Associates was commissioned to carry out the Initial Feasibility Study, and as a result, this led onto an application to Highland LEADER and sportscotland, to assist as major donors to the £250,000 project. Both these applications were accepted.
