Help Keep the Playground Fully Open


The playground is an amazing resource for the young folk of the local community and a sanity saver for many grownups.  Sadly missed by all during the lockdown we are delighted to say it is now open again.  There is no doubt that it is well used and desperately in need of some TLC.  The fact the playground can be used at all is thanks to all those that donated through May and June for us to open the gardens and keep them open. Unfortunately due to our current financial situation caused by a lack of income during lockdown it is not possible to carry out essential maintenance.  This may lead to us having to close of some areas of the playground if we cannot raise the money to carry out this essential maintenance and repairs. This work will include replacement sand for the sand pit, replacement play bark for the activity area, repairs to the playground surface and the refurbishment and replacement of some of the older equipment.  The more we raise the more we can do. We are delighted to report that our anonymous benefactor that supported our appeal to keep the gardens open has kindly agreed to support this appeal as well, therefore once we get to £4750 they will top us up to the £6,000 target. Please Donate as much as you can afford Thank you for supporting our work and please do gift aid your donation is you are able.
