    Weʼve raised £1,820 to expand and enhance the Brightwell Cum Sotwell Playgrounds at Kingsmeadow and the Recreation Ground on Mackney Lane

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The children of Brightwell-cum-Sotwell love to play outdoors and we would like to enhance the current play facilities.

    Phase 1 will add a new toddler play area in Kingsmeadow and a new zip line for the older children at a cost of £60,500. In addition to this, we will resurface the existing play area.

    Phase 2 will add new play equipment to the Recreation Ground play area on Mackey Lane at a cost of approximately £40,000. This will also include the addition of adult gym equipment.

    The committee has applied for two grants to fund the construction. The grant guidelines require that we "match fund" of a small percentage of the total amount in order to release the grant. This JustGiving page has been set up in order to raise the necessary funds to meet the match funding requirements. To confirm, our £15,000 target will cover funding for both Phase 1 and Phase 2.

    We estimate that once our full fundraising target is achieved, Phase 1 construction could begin in October 2017.

    Our wonderful village is a community of generous and giving people so please donate to our cause!

      We are excited to announce that work has now begun on the new play area in Kingsmeadow. The parish council have also kindly donated funds to build a new trim trail around the existing play area so we shall have a wonderful play area for children of all ages to explore, socialise and have fun in. We cannot wait and hope to complete mid September.

    A committee was formed to improve the children's play areas in Brightwell. Children from Brightwell Primary School, Scouts, CUBS, Beavers and Toddlers were asked how they would improve the playgrounds and these enhancements represent the final plans that meet the brief.
