About The Essex Crowd

About The Essex Crowd

We will be running a funding round in Autumn 2018. We want to support as many ideas as possible and can pledge up to £10,000 to do so. See the 'About' tab for more information on the round and the key dates so you don't miss out! The Essex Crowd is all about bringing people together behind good ideas that communities want to see happen. We want to back local good ideas that create connections and bring people together. You’ll have the best idea of what might work in your local area, so why not share your idea and let others join in?

Great Holland Play Area Refurbishment
Great Holland Play Area Refurbishment joined The Essex Crowd1 month ago

Frinton and Walton Town Council(FAWTC) have been interested in refurbishing Great Holland play area since 2015. During the last three years a specification was drawn up and quotations were obtained. The site is on the corner of Pork Lane/Kirby Road, Great Holland. The land that the existing playground and open space is on is owned by FAWTC. FAWTC want to enable more young people to take part in exercise close to where they live. All other play areas are located some distance away and involve a bus or car journey. The existing equipment is very old and quite limited. The new plans will offer a range of equipment most suitable for children aged 2-12 years old, including young people with disabilities who often miss out on the exercise and the enjoyment that play areas offer. Consultations with residents, local playgroups and schools have helped with the design of the project. These groups have made it clear that a refurbished play area at Great Holland would be a great community asset.
