Story

Our park is in need of a long awaited facelift. Our current Playarea is tired, old & in areas unsafe to play on.

Back in 2014 we formed a friends group to help secure funding for a new Playarea. companies were asked to come up with a design for the new playarea so we carried out consultations in the community and voted for our favourite.

The total cost of the playarea is 80k and so far we have around 30k for existing funds for the park & the Tesco bags for life which we came second.
Recently we have secured 25k from Viridor funding.
We have applied for a number of other grants for funding but have been unsuccessful.

We would really love a new & safe playarea for our children so we didn't have to keep travelling to other successful parks.

    We've been unsuccessful in our latest bid to Aviva for 25k 😔 so we need support even more now to raise the rest of the money for the new park. We had over 30000 votes for the Aviva bid so if every who voted gave £10 we'd smash our target! Thank you all for your continued support! Together we can do this!
