Community Playground Redevelopment

We are match funding with Brighton and Hove City Council to raise money for the redevelopment of a community playground. We want to make the community playground safe and inclusive for all ages.

In the playground the small apparatus is in the nursery playground and cant be accessed by the public. The small apparatus has parts where it doesn't meet health and safety requirements. There is safety tarmac that has lifted and has pot holes. There is also a wooden 3ft-4ft fence that has split and is rotten. It has fallen in the past. The small apparatus that doesn't meet health and safety will be going and the community will be getting a brand new small climbing frame that will then be in the public side permanently. In the main section there is a set of swings that has been here since 1980 (what a parent recons) that is missing a swing seat as it fell down and missed a child. The swing on the field is also missing a swing seat. The big apparatus has moved from its foundations.

What we'll deliver:

  • brand new climbing apparatus for children under 5
  • 4ft metal fencing
  • safer tarmac (brand new)
  • fixing the swings so children can use them

Why it's a great idea:

This is a great project because the community playground hasn't been maintained well. The community has been speaking to the nursery and how they would like the playground more inclusive. The redevelopment has also been recommended by Sussex Police and West Sussex Fire and Rescue. Money spent on the playground would mean that the playground is meeting local safeguarding issues, health and safety and also meeting every child's needs

Steps to get it done:

  • Metal fence
  • safety tarmac
  • small climbing frame
