Following feedback from children and grown-ups we will also be including more seating and picnic facilities within the playground.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The playground is at the heart of the village and is very well used by local children and school children, users of the village hall and cricket field. The play area is an important space for the community. Many pieces of the current playground equipment are very old and consequently, cost a lot to maintain from limited parish council funds. Some pieces of equipment are frequently out of action while they are waiting to be repaired. The playground is a much used resource for the parish, providing a free and safe playspace for families in this rural area. The project will provide new play equipment and surfacing that will transform the current, tired playground into ‘Warnhams new deer park’. The aim is to provide an updated playspace for the village that will bring people together. The playground has been designed so that children of all ages can to play together with more facilities for parents and grown ups to enjoy the space too.
Steps to get it done:
We hope you like the deer theme - There has been a deer park in Warnham for over 180 years and this theme will teach children about the local history of Warnham through play. This is an expensive project and the Parish Council has managed to secure 70% of the funds required, through Sct 106 money from local developments as well as Parish Council funds. We need your help to raise the remaining 30% to deliver this amazing facility for our community.
