Funding approved for improving the play park facilities in Woodhall Spa's Jubilee park
The money awarded by WREN's FCC Community Action Fund will be used to buy and install new play equipment and safety surfaces in the play park. Some of the existing equipment is worn out and badly in need of replacement.
Tim Peacock (one of the Park's Trustees) believes that the improved facilities will make a huge difference to families using the play park throughout the year.
He says: 'When the project is complete, Jubilee Park will have a great range of play equipment that should last us well into the future. It will ensure that children and their families who live in the village or visit from further afield will really enjoy spending some time using the play park'
The total project will cost in excess of £33,700. Thanks are due to WREN and also to local contributors who have been very generous. It is hoped that the new facilities will be ready to use before the summer holidays.
WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community, biodiversity and heritage projects from funds donated by FCC Enviroment through the Landfill Communities Fund.
Cheryl Raynor, WREN’s grant manager for Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Cambridgeshire, says: “We are delighted to be supporting the Woodhall Spa - Children's Play Area Improvement project and pleased that our funding will provide such a fantastic facility for children across the area. WREN is always happy to consider grant applications for projects that make a difference to local communities and we’re really looking forward to seeing this one take shape soon.”
