Our playground is showing signs of its age and is in need of updating. After asking children in Naunton what they would most like to see in the playground a team of local parents has come together to improve this vital village resource.
New playground equipment will allow children to explore, socialise and learn through play, while a picnic area, nature area and woodland trail will breathe new life into the playground for the benefit of the whole community.
What we'll deliver:
- Install new play equipment and incorporate existing structures
- Build a lovely picnic area with seating
- Create a nature area with bug hotels, bird feeders, hedging and wildflowers to encourage wildlife
- Create a woodland trail
- Replace the football goals
Why it's a great idea:
It has never been more important to support the mental and physical health and wellbeing of our youngsters. Children need safe, appealing spaces where they can connect with their peers and the outdoors, take exercise and have fun!
Improvements to Naunton’s playground will ensure it is a happy, stimulating place where children can develop and families can relax and socialise.
Thank you for helping us!
