Our New Playground

January/February 2018

 

In 2017 the Village started a project to raise money for a new playground to replace the existing facility which has seen much better days. Through a combination of grants from WREN, East Cambridgeshire District Council, Kompan and the Parish Council we have now reached our target.

WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community, biodiversity and heritage projects from funds donated by FCC Environment through the Landfill Communities Fund.

Our supplier Kompan have provided us with a bespoke design and are kindly providing 35% matched funding following our 2nd place in their ‘describe your dream playground’ competition. Kompan, has sustainability as one of its core principles, and provides long lasting quality and great value playground equipment for all ages and abilities

The new playground installation is scheduled to start January 22nd, 2018. The playground is going to be relocated to the side of the playing field to allow more space for a wider range of equipment. The playground includes equipment to suit a wide range of ages, including 2 different play towers, a zip-wire and fitness equipment.  Watch this space for updates on the installation process which is expected to take around 4 weeks.
