Village Playground Project

We are so fortunate to have such a great village playing field and playground for our children to play in.  However the play equipment is now 10 years old, so a group of enthusiastic parents will be looking to get us enthused and fund raising to enhance the great equipment we have and hopefully add something for the slightly older children.

Oaksey Playground Equipment Project 

We are launching an exciting project to upgrade the facilities in the playground and looking to

Purchase additional new items of equipment

Spread the areas of play around the edge of the playing field

Appeal to more and hopefully all age groups.

Diversify the reach of play through new activities

In conjunction with the Parish Council we are forming a small committee group to look at a development plan  for implementation over the next 3 years.  This will include investigating the types of new equipment that is available, the associated costs and permissions required, sources of funding and fund raising opportunities together with on-going inspection and maintenance.

Recruiting…..

We are looking for another committee member.  Hopefully someone with older children at secondary school or just going, who can help us achieve their requirements.

If you have a particular area of expertise and would like to join or assist the group or if you have any particular ideas you wish to contribute then please contact us on the email addresses above.
