We were successful in securing a grant of £10,000 from the Big Lottery Fund in order to develop the playground activities for our children. The bid centered on fun and fitness and we impressed the Big Lottery Fund with our vision for an inclusive and exciting playground.
The grant funds have provided two bespoke multi games activity centers incorporating football goal units, netball ring and cricket stumps, with additional panels and games targets.
This exciting playground project was completed earlier this year and all the children have enjoyed using the new facilities.
