£2,350raised of £5,000 target by 58 supporters

Weʼre raising £5,000 to Improve Ellenbrook Playground with a wider range of apparatus for the Local Children and for families visiting Nast Hyde Halt.

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 charity.

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


Hi folks, over 3 years ago I started work on improving the Old Ghost Station of Nast Hyde Halt on the Alban Way. The good Local People and many passers by have supported me from the start till 'almost' finished! However as the old Halt improves...sadly the Children's Playground continues to decline...recently seeing part of it removed due to it being 'no longer fit for use'.

Local Ellenbrook residence Jordan, Gill and Zack have called upon support from every corner in order to raise funds to get improvement work underway and they most definitely have my full support which is why I'm getting the ball rolling with this 'Just Giving' page.

The Ellenbrook Area Residence Association (EARA) have also jumped on board and have found a couple of possible avenues to venture down in order to contribute to the overall amount needed which stands at around £35000. This does not include a possible Adult Gym which can wait for another time as the Children's new playground must come first.

The Hatfield Town Council and various Councillors are looking into areas where funds can be gained for the Project but can't reach the full amount needed which is why we're asking for your help.

You can clearly see how 'People Power' has transformed our lovely sleepy Train Station so please join me in turning the old Playground around too for the enjoyment and fun of Families and Children for many years to come!

There will be other fund raising events I'm sure throughout the year but this is my way of getting the fund raising started and the perfect way of saying a big THANK YOU to all those who have supported me and my work on Nast Hyde Halt and the old line up to 'Deadman's Crossing'...the Hatfield ~

St.Albans Border.

If you were thinking of donating to the Nast Hyde Halt project this year ...please place your donation here instead and lets add even more magic to our once forgotten area...together we can work wonders so lets get stuck in !!!!

From Jordan, Gill, Zack, Mike, EARA and all the Families and Children far and wide we say a MASSIVE thank you for any support you can give...BIG or small.
