St Tudy Playing Field Playground

(Cornwall)

Our wish is to redevelop the playground in memory of Claire, a mother of 4 children and pre-school manager. Claire was an inspiration to many and a good friend to many in the area. Claire suddenly and tragically passed away and is already much missed. This redevelopment would encourage children to have more outdoor play and to engage with each other rather than using computers, play stations and phones. Nationally children can be spending 6 hours a day in devices according to a recent report broadcast on Woman’s Hour.

Our goals:

  • We want to replace an old out of date playground with a safe, exciting outdoor play area and equipment that provides fun and challenges for the children of our community.
  • There is no disabled equipment and there are children in the parish that are disabled and cannot access the equipment. They have to sit and watch in their wheelchairs. Those adults with mobility issues also cannot help their children play. We want to change this.
  • We want to provide space for pre-schoolers and primary school pupils to have veg patches so they can start to grow their own fruit and veg. A small area will be set aside to encourage wildlife especially bees and wild flowers.

How we will achieve our goals

The Playing Field was established in 1932 with the small playground established in the 1970s. One or two pieces of equipment were replaced over the last 10 years but some of the equipment is really very tired. There is great desire to redevelop the playground by everyone in the parish. The One Family Foundation Community Award would make a huge difference and enable this project to be implemented with key pieces of equipment.

Where the money will go

The playground will provide a safe space and high-quality play equipment that will facilitate quality family time. Children will be able to play outdoors, learn to share, to play together and to have fun. The playground is easily reached in the village and new disabled access will allow everyone to join in. This will be an all year round facility and will be especially valuable after school and in holiday time.

    The village playground is so very tired and in desperate need of a complete over haul. This would be so welcome to my family having 2 daughters aged 3 and 10 years as well as professionally as i work at st.Tudy preschool and we regularly visit the park as part of our sessions and have lovely picnic’s there but is becoming increasingly challenging as some of the equipment is unsafe for tiny ones.

    We are so pleased to see this is starting to happen, the park is getting quite dangerous now with all the potholes and no matting, be lovely for future generations to enjoy a safe and fun environment as have the many generations before them! We use the park area a lot with 3 small children and are very excited to see this project completed! Thank you 😊

    This is much needed in the area, new play equipment will encourage active play and fun! Good luck!

    What a fantastic asset this would be for the local community. It is so important to encourage children to be out of doors and active, and as the mother of two young children I know how difficult this can be, so having the new equipment would be brilliant. I also feel really strongly that opportunities for young children to grow their own fruit and veg are vital in forming healthy, responsible and respectful adults – another great idea.
