There’s been a recreation area in Blackwell End for some 70 years and play equipment has come and gone several times. Most recently, equipment was removed some ago when it became unsafe.
It is now possible to install new items of play equipment if we are able to secure grant funding. The Parish Council has agreed to contribute £2,000 to the project and we hope to secure a grant from funding bodies such as the National Lottery Awards for All.
Six suppliers have provided plans and these will be available to view on
Saturday 24 February between 11am and 6pm in the Old Talbot.
Without community support the project cannot proceed, so please come along to tell us which set of plans you, and most importantly, your children prefer. We want to hear from everyone. The views of younger residents were critical when we installed the skatepark and we hope they will help out again.
