Play Area Renovation Gladstone Village Hall
Save our Play Area! The Council has handed over the aging Village Play Area to the community to run and maintain. Safety inspections have revealed the multi-play unit to be unsafe and it must be replaced. Additionally, when the Play Area was designed and built insufficient consideration was given to the less-able.
- The project will enable the replacement of unsafe and outdated equipment.
- The project will enable the installation of equipment usable by less-able children.
- The project will encourage the use of the Play Area to the benefit of the children and their carers.
How we will achieve our goals
The Community Award will all be used for the purchase and installation of a multi-play unit and, a cantilevered swing and turn-table both of which are designed to be usable by less-able children. The installation of this equipment will lead to the increased use of the Play Area and helping to provide a social focal point for their carers.
Where the money will go
The Play Area is a public facility for the use of 1-17 year olds in the villages of Burton and Puddington. These villages are isolated rural communities with no public transport and the Play Area is the only such facility for miles around. The introduction of play equipment for the less-able children will open new possibilities for those children.
