raised of £3,000 target by 36 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,310 to create a better children's play area in Chester Street Park. The current area is old and unsafe. Please help by donating a small amount.

    Funded on Friday, 1st May 2020

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    The current play equipment is old and dangerous and we want to create a new facility that is welcoming, open, inclusive and accessible to the whole community.

    Green space in this area is critical to the health and wellbeing of young children. The Holmebrook local authority ward, which contains most of Brampton, has the lowest amount of green space per head of population in the town. Most of the residents live in the terraced houses around Chester Street, which open directly on to the street and have little or no gardens. We consider Chester Street Park to be precious for sustaining community cohesion, wellbeing and access to nature & play. Unfortunately, due to the state of the park, local residents are not using it to its full extent and are not getting the health benefits they require from the green space.

    Currently, the park railings are rusty and have not been painted since the 1980s and the children’s play equipment is tired, with broken flooring under it.

    The council has neglected the park for years and irresponsible dog owners do not pick up after their dogs, creating an unsafe, unpleasant space. There is also evidence of drug use in the river, which runs alongside the park making families wary about using the area.

    With your help, we can create a safe space for families to enjoy for generations to come.

    Please support by donating a small amount... Just £2 could make a huge difference.
